I am from europe - and we got a new law that prohibits the use of conventional bulbs in home use. The project will be some kind of game, where lightbulbs are used as "pixels". The aim of this work is to seize the prohibition of the lightbulb, and should be a hommage to it.
With 100's of millions of homes, the savings in power will be significant in bettering life.
Why pay homage to a thing that has long signified useless waste? What percent of the power going into an incandescent bulb is turned directly to heat? About 90%. 90% waste. Homage? It should be the opposite! Now it's closer to 20% waste. If that was taxes, you would understand immediately so why not with light bulbs?
What's next? Let's return to gas lights in the house or better yet... candles and fireplace! Oh yeah! Then people start vandalizing houses for wood to burn.
I live above 1200 ft altitude. Maybe after the coastal cities are under water enough will stopped being done that sea level won't rise this high. But I wouldn't bet on it.
