Flat bulb

Remember when you saw the first eco-compact fluorescent lightbulb with it's unusual bending tubes, how different it seemed to our pear shaped incandescent bulbs?  Well here is another great re-thinking of the current light bulb! Joonhuyn Kim has slimmed the sides of the pear-shaped light bulb to create this sliced version which saves space in packaging, making it more portable, less fragile and stackable. I'm not sure how feasible this is - there must be an engineer geek out there who can explain the reasons why the round bulb is the way it it, or has no one simply thought to rethink the original shape? Still, nice to challenge everyday objects.
