Sure, Why Not: A New, Flatter Lightbulb

Korean designer Joonhuyn Kim came up with a novel improvement for lightbulbs -- making them flatter!

unlike ordinary bulbs its volume is 1/3 smaller, reducing the cost of packaging and transport. its slim shape allows bulbs to be easily stacked and prevents breakage as it does not roll.

Sweet. But as a guy who's smoked crack thinking it was something else, a word of advice: you catch yourself freebasing out of a lightbulb and it's time to reevaluate your life. Or admit you're a crackhead.

Hit the jump for a couple more pictures.

Thanks to bandango, who also used to smoke out of lightbulbs, and is willing to bongify one of these for the sake of quality assurance.
