Among the technologies on the cutting edges of research and development, we have cloud-based computing and solid-state lighting. So naturally, someone asked the question, "what if you put them together?" A Tokyo-based company, NetLED Technology Corp., has developed its answer to that question. It offers LED lighting that can be controlled using iPhone apps (iPad and Android versions due out this summer) via a cloud-based control interface. You can use your phone or tablet to dim the lights or switch them on and off. The system also makes it possible to track energy usage in real-time and to automatically aggregate data over an extended period of time.
