Seen here is a 1,500-lumen LED lamp. GE Research asked that the front of the lamp not be shown for competitive reasons. In order to make this lamp cool enough to operate safely and efficiently, GE is using several special synthetic jets that use piezo electric actuators. The lamp has been tested for more than 3,000 hours so far, but its design goal is more than 50,000 hours.
