Have you ever looked at your recessed lighting and thought to yourself "Boy that's a lot of wasted space, I wish those lights could also be 70 millimeter speakers!"  Well you're in luck, because Osram Sylvania and Artison have joined forces to make it happen.

Alright, admittedly, it is kind of a cool idea.  The lights are LEDs, which use 10 watts of power to put out as much light as a traditional 65 watt bulb.  They've also got a wireless receiver built-in and of course, 70mm speakers.

Sound quality aside, there's something to be said for the sheer convenience of it.  On one remote you'll have your dimmer, your on/off switch and your music selector.  You can stream from a variety of sources, including your mobile device.  The lights will be sold in pairs along with a controller when they launch this fall.  No price has yet been announced.
