World's first (nearly) unbreakable LED light bulb can be dropped off the side of a building and still work

Drop it off a building, throw it down the stairs or carry it around in your bag with no padding. Lighting Science says that its new Durabulb can withstand all of that and more, making it the world's first (nearly) unbreakable LED light bulb . The lightweight bulb consumes about 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and slashes the packaging materials needed to ship it thanks to its ultra-rugged design. The game-changing bulb was even lauded recently by actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio , who called it a "great new, innovative light bulb that uses about 80% less energy and has a takeback program to keep it out of landfills."
