There is no incandescent apocalypse imminent, so you can save yourself the trouble of hoarding incandescent bulbs from Home Depot, as well as save yourself from unusual stares at the sales counter.
With the recent world-wide incandescent phase out, alternatives are popping up everywhere. In fact a California designer Switch Lighting Company began in 2007 and is attempting to change the light bulb forever. Since the incandescent light’s introduction into this world in 1835, no other bulb has been able to match its beautiful glow. Once called Artificial Sunshine, the incandescent bulb has done so much for so many since its beginning. Why discard the design as if it were a piece of yesterday’s mail? The design works, the energy consumption does not.
Broken Light in Rotterdam, Netherlands by Daglicht & Vorm was honored with the IALD Radiance Award of Excellence, the highest point score winner across all categories of the 15 architectural lighting design projects recognized.
Can light be turned into liquid? Possibly, and yes researchers have been working on a way to turn light into a glowing liquid. To learn more visit the New Scientist.
And for the visual answer to this question, embrace this video’s enhanced portrayal that seems to reflect the thought, ”What if light turned liquid?”

Although the majority of abduction phenomenon reports involve humans, there are a select few that include animal abductions. And the Alien Abduction Lamp does a wonderful job at depicting the experience a cow may experience upon his abduction.
