Well, LEDs have a number of advantages over lightsaber-style bulbs: they&#39;re dimmable, they use less power, and they make nicer light - Jake Dyson offers two colour temperatures as standard but you can futher tweak the Ariel&#39;s white balance if you wish. Whereas all neon striplighting is set to a colour temperature we like to call I Wonder If This Headache Will Last Forever. &nbsp;</p> <p>Also Hot: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/hoverboards-may-be-dream-rocketskates-are-now-reality/news">RocketSkates</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="682" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Dysonlight03.jpg?1405905579" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Still, I bet the bulbs are a nightmare to change.</strong></p> <p>That&#39;s another advantage - you don&#39;t have to. Not more than once every 13 years, anyway - as with their CSYS lamps, these lights are guaranteed to last well over a decade, and possibly quite a bit longer than that. So, while the Ariel won&#39;t be cheap (there&#39;s no pricing information yet), it could save you money in the long run.
