Pictured above are two lamps which look eerily similar to the well-received ALED.Â The owner of these photos was deliberately mum on the details of these lamps but we suspect that this is no DIY project. The reason that the white and bluesÂ are not being mixed is that all of the LEDs of an individual lamp are made on the same die, and they therefore must share the same lighting and power characteristics.These lamps may just be prototypes but it is very likely that someone will eventually bring them to market in this form factor. We believe that these lamps are being brought to market by Coralvue but other than that we have no word on pricing or availability.Â Â We have been evaluating the ALED light for a couple weeks now and without divulging too much, we’ve been pretty smitten with it. Stay tuned for the ALED review and more news about the forthcoming LED lamps.
