General Electric has unveiled a new line of light fixtures aimed to replace fluorescents. And since they’re powered by LED bulbs, the new Edge line of lights will be much more efficient.
The lights resemble a flat-screen television, and come in models that can either be installed in a ceiling so that they lay flush with the ceiling tiles, or suspended from the roof. The ceiling tile-style fixtures are expected to be available later this year, while the suspended ones will be sold at some point in 2012.
With a series of coin-sized lights, the Edge fixtures can be programmed to either spread out light evenly across the screen or focus on one particular area. The lights have an estimated life span of 35,000 hours, 15,000 more than traditional fluorescents.
