These are exiting times I have to say.. Seems like the lighting revolution is just around the corner. Already in regular shops I've seen 30 watt leds with light strength around 1500 lumens being sold for about 30 € now. They used to cost 100 € half a year ago!

These strengths are nowhere near as powerful as sodium vapor lamps, but we are improving fast. When we get 10 000 lumen leds for a less than a hundred bucks I would say there will be a revolution in food growing. People everywhere will create all kinds of wonderful vertical gardens and hopefully also use aeroponic systems! And this will play a big role in ensuring that food doesn't run out because of the huge growth in worlds population!
