Nanoleaf Bloom is a futuristic-looking light bulb that promises to save you energy.
Does it work? We asked for a sample to see for ourselves.
It even fit in our tiny reading lamp.
For those who don't speak lightbulb, here's how three lights you've seen fare.
A lumen (lm) is a unit of measurement for brightness. A watt (W) is a unit of power, or how much energy you need to get that puppy going. Because new energy-saving bulbs use fewer watts to operate, shopping can get a little confusing, so what you want to look for are lumens.
Here's how three other common bulbs break down, per the U.S. Department of Energy:
Regular (incandescent), 60W: 10-18 lm/W
Compact fluorescents (CFLs): 35-60 lm/W
LEDs: 27-92 lm/W
The Nanoleaf Bloom operates using 120 lumens/watt, making it incredibly energy-efficient.
