Every Lightbulb Will Now Have an IPV6 Address!

"What if every light bulb had its own unique Internet IP address? The possibilities are endless: You could monitor, manage and control every light bulb from any Internet-enabled device – turning lights on and off individually, dimming or creating scenes from your smartphone, tablet, PC or TV.

Yesterday NXP and Green Wave Reality announced to the world that they plan to give every lightbulb an IPV6 address. Hot on the heels of Google's 900 mhz announcement, Green Wave Reality already has iPhone / Android / and Web-based support. Looks like the lighting wars have started."

Pervasive and ubiquitous surveillance, disguised as an assisting technology for energy efficiency.

How many gift Trojan horses must we look in the mouth, on a daily basis?

Wow. The implications of this are endless. Somehow I imagined the future of technology as different from where it's going sad2.gif

edit
Nor can I imagine something more useless. On/off what else do you need?

What a find OP! cheers.gif This could actually escalate to the point of a black market demand for the old incandescent light bulbs without IP addresses, and nothing to monitor us with.

AS is right candles rule.

As long as they are legal. 13.gif

Only approved religious institutions can have candles, we will be given flashlights that tie to our I-pads so we can turn them on and off, dim them and have a strobe effect if having a power failure and you just have to dance. vic.gif

I have already purchased 2-cases of old fashion incandescent light bulbs, think I'll go out and get more.
I disabled my On-Star, do not like anybody having control over a vehicle I paid for with my own money.
Not that I have anything to hide but too much is just too damn muchcoffeetime.gif

Yup, that big brother "we're keeping you safe by tracking your every move" doesn't sit well with me either. If we are prepared to surrender our privacy for "safety" we don't deserve either.

Towards the end, they're going to have to outlaw matches and lighters.
Better stock up on those too :)

I wired a few smart houses about 12-14 years ago. You could turn on any light, adjust the heat/ac, turn on the oven, pretty much anything you wanted to do from anywhere you could get an internet connection. Putting that technology in a bulb is a waste.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
