18 Attention Grabbers From CES Opening Night


Klipsch is well known for home audio systems, but at CES 2010 it's showing off LightSpeaker, a system that combines wireless speakers and LED lights and screws into recessed ceiling light fixtures with a standard Edison socket.

Developed in conjunction with Kadence Designs, Lightspeaker comes with a 2.4GHz wireless receiver that handles up to eight speakers; a 20-watt digital amplifier; and a 2.5-inch wide dispersion driver. The LED light shines with the brightness of a 65-watt incandescent bulb.

Klipsch claims that the light bulbs in LightSpeaker last up to 15 years. In the age of green everything, that's a value proposition that doesn't need a whole lot of explaining.
