LED-light effect filter

Ideal for the eco-lazy

A colour filter, plastic or gel, shaped so as to fit over tungsten. tungsten-halogen, or low energy fluorescent lamps, changing the spectral emission so as to simulate the effect of having installed low energy multi-LED lamps, but without the trouble and expense.

Produces a dim, shadowy light that doesn't render colours properly, makes it difficult to read, and eventually causes blinding headaches.

Be the envy of your friends and neighbors ....

       Whoa, hold up there. Let's fix one thing at a time. Those compact fluorescents still aren't understandable or mass produced in variants that we don't understand yet.   

       //Produces a dim, shadowy light//   

       Wattage, colour temperature, colour spectrum, and circadian or penumbral artifacts; you expect to reduce this all to domestic theatre effects ? Personally I expect better from a collective intelligence and would rather put my money behind a commercial enterprise like Philips. Your synthesizers were ok, but you should stick to the business you know.

       don't complain too much. It was a near thing that filament lighting won out over florescent.

       Properly designed LED lights produce bright, full spectral light. Stop buying the cheap ones.

       I heard that about HID too, how a good HID system wouldn't blind other drivers and would provide bright glare free light. Easy to say.
