Hot or Not? Light Bulb Clothes Dryer

Hot or Not? Light Bulb Clothes Dryer

The problem with regular incandescent light bulbs is that most of their energy is expelled as heat rather than light, which is why their so inefficient. Throwing them away in still seems, well a little wasteful, but now a designer has found a way to make the most of their inefficiency — by using their heat to dry laundry. Read more below, but first answer our survey:

German designer Samuel Treindl has devised this fixture, Luftick, to take advantage of both the heat and light output from the bulb — the user can just hang their clothes around the cage and flip the switch to dry laundry by the light.
