Flashing LEDs could create a mesh network for self-driving cars
August 20, 2014
Engineers are working on all sorts of technologies that could make cars smarter and help drivers stay safe-lasers, radar, ad-hoc WiFi, and advanced image recognition are all on the table. However, these are all complicated and expensive to implement. Intel research scientist Richard Roberts has a different idea. It may be possible to use visible light emitted by LEDs to create a low-cost automobile mesh network. Many cars already have LED headlights that could be used in such a system, so we're already off to a good start.

Lutron Caseta Wireless Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Kit
August 19, 2014
As more and more connected light bulbs flood the digital homemarket, it's surprising we haven't seen nearly as many accessories designed to bring connectivity to products we already have. After all, it can get pretty pricey to replace a bunch of bulbs that are still working perfectly well. The Lutron Caseta Wireless Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Kitmakes it easy to bring some connectivity to bulbs in the lamps you already own, and for $80, you can connect two lamps to a single dimmer. It works well, setup is simple, and it comes with a remote control out of the box. If you want to pair it with your smartphone, however, you'll have to spend extra money on a bridge. Setup The white, plastic dimmer box measures 3.1 by 2.1 by 1.2 inches (HWD) and plugs into a standard outlet. It supports up to 300-watt incandescent or halogen bulbs, or 100-watt dimmable CFL or LED bulbs. I tested the kit using a Philips 60-watt equivalent dimmable LED bulb.
