One of the more interesting products revealed at CES 2010 came from home speaker manufacturer, Klipsch, who won the 2010 CES Innovations Award with their Klipsch LightSpeaker. The unit replaces a standard Edison socket, such as a 5- 6" recessed can lighting common in many modern household, with an integrated 2.4GHz wireless speaker and LED lighting combo. The transmitter works with media players such as a television, mp3 player or laptop, broadcasting audio to up to 8 installed speakers with nary an additional wire installed.
