Philips Hue Light Bulbs

Price: $200 (starter pack)

Talk about your bright ideas. Philips Hue Personal Wireless Lighting pairs LED low-cost lighting technology with wireless Web connections to let you control your bulbs via an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. Better yet, the bulbs can cycle through different shades of white light and recreate any color spectrum to get you in the romantic mood, settle the kids down for homework or match the tone of the Red Wedding episode from "Game of Thrones." The starter pack includes a bridge that connects to your home Wi-Fi setup and three bulbs, capable of expanding to 50.
