    Quick crappy video of taking apart a Philips hue light, see colinoflynn.com/2016/08/philips-hue-r-e-whitepaper-from-black-hat-2016/ for R.E. whitepaper. Sorry for crap audio, I didn't check my setup and seems to be catching some movement or breathing or something, and actual audio is quiet. Didn't notice until after uploading.

Nice teardown. But would be cool if you had plugged it in and played with its colors a bit after you took off the plastic cap, so we could see the LEDs in action.

.....and always there is that cool guy on youtube who will satisfy those of us who wanted to know how things work in depth. Thank you so much for this!! I was wondering how a device communicates with the bulb. I suspected that there would be some wifi communicating device on bord the bulb. Now i know there is actually a tiny motherbord inside the bulb. And definately it is not a regular tungsten filament bulb and it is LED and that is why we get color variations. No wonder why these bubls cost lot. Btw did u find the wifi communication device on the motherbord. Thank you again and although you sacrifised on expensive bulb, you have taught many of us and we appreciate that!.

Interesting video thanks, i'm thinking to create a "Philips Hue" Smart Plug attaching a relays to this board, what do you think?

Can you actually connect different LED(s) to this board and control it as a hue light bulb? if so what's the max wattage it can take?

A guy uploaded this video. Looks like an old version but I doubt the diodes themselves were changed. Perhaps some one with a better eye for detail could tell the forward voltage and whatnot http://youtu.be/Mg_Iw4yzilI

Was there ever any answers to the two questions?

Sebastian Lichoń I'd also be interested in the supply voltage of the LEDs

I never thought that the dome could be made out of plastic. I guess these bulbs must run really cool.

Michael It's the internals that get hot (e.g. the processor, motherboard) the LEDs run very cool and don't need a glass dome.

They don't, actually surprisingly hot, but the metal base does a very effective job as heatsink.
