Imagine Tic Tac sized bulbs as bright as street lights. I cannot describe the contrast, you just have to see the video to believe it in the video buried in the link provided. 140 Lumens per watt is by far the most efficient out there at the moment. By contrast, premium LEDs get 70 lumens per watt and the incandescent gets about 15. In the middle of the bulb the temperature will be 6000 degrees Kelvin.
The spectrum is also similiar to that of the sun. I hope they can scale it down to rice size bulbs :p
