The best engineering schools will not have the time to teach you how to build a smart light bulb, so you can use a free online tool to make one.
The Smart Light Bulb Builder from SmartLightbulbs.com allows users to make light bulbs with just one click and is designed to give you the tools to get your own light bulb.
“The basic goal of the SmartLightBulbBuilder is to teach people how to make a smart lighting bulb,” SmartLightBowl.com developer Scott Parnell told Mashable.
“You need a couple of basic tools, and that’s all there is to it.
This tool is a tool for you to learn how to do that.”
It also offers an option to turn off the lights after 24 hours and to set your smart bulb to run on an external battery.
You can see how it works in the video below.
SmartLight BulbBuilder makes it easy to create a smart bulb with just a few clicks and includes a free download that can be installed onto any USB flash drive.
“Our goal is to make it easy for people to build these things, and it’s really nice to see people actually doing that,” Parnick said.
“It’s really fun to see them actually get their hands dirty, and then to see that the light bulb comes on and goes off.”
Parnott also said that there is a tutorial for the SmartlightBulb builder that will teach you the basic steps for building a smart lamp.
Smart Lightbulb Builder is not available for sale on the App Store yet.
However, you can find it on Amazon for $6.99.
The project has been endorsed by the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and by the National Science Foundation.
