This lamp could outlive you.

It's getting to be common knowledge that LEDs are among the most energy-efficient lighting options out there, but they still maintain some problems: ugly light color, for one; and shortened life due to their own heat damaging themselves, for another. But now Jake Dyson (yes, his dad is the vacuum god) has devised a new lamp that addresses both those problems. His CSYS desk lamp, which debuted during New York Design Week , has a built-in heat pipe running inside its arm that carries the heat generated by the LEDs away from them. The arm itself acts as a heat sink, releasing the heat into the air. The result is that the attached LEDs will last a whopping 37 years longer!
