Genius HTC Light Bulb Could Save Your Life

The new light bulb uses smarts from the HTC Vive VR headset technology to be more aware of its surroundings. The idea is for the bulb to detect if a person has had a bad fall, in a bathroom for example. This will be done using the room detection smarts of the sensors used by the HTC Vive to detect movement of the VR headset wearer – only in this case without a headset involved at all. The device uses motion detection and a specific set of rules. If a person falls this will be recognized by the bulb. This is then able to recognize that the person has not only fallen but is stuck in that position. Presumably the device will then be able to contact someone for help. At the moment the super smart light bulb is still in the patent stages. After signing a $1.1 billion deal with Google recently we could see this sort of tech folded into other devices like the Nest cameras, for example.
