Sharp develops non-insect-attracting lightbulbs

Sharp has developed new LED technology that'll allow you to control the colour of your lightbulbs via remote control. As a bonus, you'll be able to cut out the frequencies that attract insects.

The 560-lumen Sharp DL-L60AV looks very similar to a traditional lightbulb and gives you eight options for what white temperature you'd like. It emits almost no light in the 350-nm (ultraviolet) waveband that tends to attract insects.

The lights, as is normal these days, are also very energy efficient, consuming 4.1 or 7.5 watts (depending on the model) and lasting for 40,000 hours.
