Will fiber optics replace the lightbulb?

“The Solon, Ohio-based company has come up with a way to combine industrial-grade lamps with fiber-optic technology to create interior lighting systems that consume far less energy than traditional fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. A single 70-watt metal halide high-intensity discharge lamp from Fiberstars linked to the company’s fiber system can provide as much lighting as eight 50-watt incandescent bulbs.”

  3. LEDs seem to be doing much better than fibre optics for lighting. I’ve yet to see any commercial FO lights anywhere
