A lamp that lasts 40 years will debut in May

Major manufacturers belonging to Phoebus pledged not to launch bulbs that would last longer than 2,000 hours. The cartel was officially disbanded in 1939, but the lifetime of a light bulb has remained suspiciously low, even with incredible advances in materials and engineering. Some of the light bulbs manufactured in Great Britain during the crisis conditions of World War II are still in use today, which some say supports the theory that a manufacturing conspiracy endured beyond 1939. Now a British inventor is set to defy the diabolical forces of a possibly ancient international light bulb conspiracy — Jake Dyson has developed a LED lamp that will last 40 years if used for 12 hours a day. That’s a hefty life span.
