The Philips Living Colors is a remote controlled 15 W. RGB led lamp.
It is available (April 2008) in the UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Luxemburg for about 110 to 150 euro.
The build and design are high quality. This is not a re-labelled generic chinese designed product.
The remote uses a radio frequency transmitter and reciever om the 2.4 GHz ISM band from Chipcon (now Texas Instruments). It does not need line of sight and can control up to 6 lamps independently or as a group.
The microcontroller in the remote and lamp is a low power microcontroller from Texas Instruments. The comminication is bi-directional which suggests Philips has more products planned, say an AmbiLight – LivingColors bridge.
