I was wondering when they'd figure out how to apply LEDs into a more conventional setting. I didn't think they were allowed to be so large. Or are they installed as clusters with a reflector inside? Hmmmmmm...

I suspect that they have 8-12 Luxeon Rebel LEDs in the incan replacement -- then use optics to spread the light to a beam pattern people expect -- something isometric-ish. They probably also use a phosphor on the inside of the outer jacket to make a diffuse beam and to give enough 'red' to the light to make it pleasing to the eye.

This isn't new, really, The General has some Par lamps and other options for commercial use -- it's not really a realistic sell to the non-super-geeky public yet, anyway. Of course, as chips get cheaper, as thermal and optic understanding/research develops and as incan options become less available (illegal!), then more and more people will move to LEDs instead of the CFL options they're pushing toward now.
