    Yesterday, one of the interesting things to come out of the first day of Google's I/O Conference was that 'Andy' is getting into the Home Integration game in a big way. One of the companies that has teamed up with Google to bring about a "Jetsons" home of the future, is called 'Light Science'. They recently demoed their first of many products from this collaboration, and it is an Android-powered remote controlled light bulb. The bulb will probably retail around $30 bucks and a WiFi-to-900MHz adapter will be necessary.

    Here's a quote from the Engadget article that gives some more details,
    Pretty soon we will all be able to turn our "castle" into an automated system that we control with our TBolt or Droid. Pretty slick huh?

    That's insane ... if only we could do it while we were out.

    "Crap left the bedroom light on again ... no problem my Droid can turn it off from work!" How sweet would that be.

    Hope it's better than X10.

    I wired my home with X10 many years ago. It has some drawbacks, but overall, I love it. I'll be very interested in this technology.
