Corn Cob LED Reuse

 

If you have been looking at screw in LED lights you have no doubt seen the Corn Cob LED style. It it simply a ton of though hole LEDs mounted around the perimeter of a bulb housing. That is all fine and good and at a quick glance you probably can only think of it as a bulb replacement. Martin Raynsford did some out of the box thinking and took one apart to revile the 8 miniature LED panels that are mounted to the housing to create the bulb like lighting effect. Very often distributed light is what you want as opposed to a central light source, with the LED panels now removed installation of them in some ideal lighting locations was now quite easy.
