2 MIPOW’s Playbulb Color is a lightbulb that hooks up to your iPhone via Bluetooth. Use the accompanying app to change the bulb’s output to any colour you like, and you can set it to flash or fade between colours. It comes with a built-in speaker (hence the bulky shape), and the sound quality is surprisingly decent – although music is liable to be briefly interrupted by any notifications sent to your iPhone. Unfortunately you can’t browse playlists either, instead having to start at the first song before skipping tracks.
