There are plenty of products on the market that allow owners to control their lighting using a smartphone. Likewise, there are plenty that control music playback through a smartphone. However, it's not every day that you see a product that does both. That's what the Kickstarter project "AirBulb" seeks to be. AirBulb is a unique LED light bulb that has a built-in speaker. The bulb has Bluetooth included, so it can pair with a smartphone and play music controlled by an Android or iOS app. The applications can also be used to:

- Turn lights on, off, or dim and adjust color temperature
- Set alarms and timers that turn lights on and play audio
- Have lights flash in patterns for incoming calls
- Play sounds of nature for ambient noise

AirBulb works with Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth 3.0, and the six LED lights included in the bulb work with standard lamp sockets. Though it's somewhat bizarre and not cheap - $69 for one unit, $115 for two - AirBulb has found some supporters. The Kickstarter project is about $31,000 away from its $100,000 goal. You can learn more about the project at the link below.
