General Electric recently announced that they are developing a light bulb that looks like an incandescent, but is actually a compact florescent.
Its exclusive new design — protected under more than a dozen U.S. patent applications — is practically identical to a standard incandescent light bulb. The GE Energy Smart CFL bulb features a spiral CFL inside the glass bulb and the electronics housed in the neck of the bulb. GE says the new bulb is Energy Star qualified.
The bulb is also intended to fit into some places where a current CFL will not. Not always pleased with the yellow glow of most CFL's, we did attempt the 'daylight' bulb that projects a clear, white light. The light was so intense, that in some places it's just too much and we traded back to the original CFL.
