Reinventing the Lightbulb!!!

"The electric light has caused me the greatest amount of study and has required the most elaborate experiments.... Although I was never myself discouraged or hopeless of its success, I can not say the same for my associates.... Through all of the years of experimenting with it, I never once made an associated discovery. It was deductive... The results I achieved were the consequence of invention - pure and simple. I would construct and work along various lines until I found them untenable. When one theory was discarded, I developed another at once. I realized very early that this was the only possible way for me to work out all the problems.
----- From "Edison The Man And His Work" by George S. Bryan 1926
Paraphrased Edison quote with respect to his work on perfecting the light bulb:

Ever thought someone could re-invent the light bulb? Well, someone has! And it can be controlled from your Smart Phone!!
