Eye Saver™: The light bulb designed by NASA

07/27/2005 9:30 AM

Design engineers at NASA don't spend all of their time launching space shuttles. In collaboration with Westinghouse Lighting Corporation, they designed the Eye Saverâ„¢ Easy Reading Light Bulb. The Eye Saver offers many advantages over most existing, commercially available light bulbs. It directs light to areas where it is most needed, leading to 40 percent more surface illumination and its lifetime is twice that of standard bulbs. It even has a "frosty finish that reduces eyestrain by lowering glare."

Funding

Hopefully they will take the money from this new light bulb and use it to design a new shuttle. Not that they would have to make to much off this build to match Federal funding on that endeavor.

This may just be the greatest NASA spinoff since Tang.

Don't forget astronaut ice cream. My wife and I got some last time we were at the NYS Museum of History.
