Dr. John Ott’s lightbulbs were first developed for time-lapse photography of plant growth in Walt Disney’s The Secrets of Life film series. Dr. Ott’s bulbs reproduce natural sunlight indoors and according to the manufacturer the bulbs greatly enhance visual acuity, reduce glare and eyestrain, provide life-like color rendering, and last up to 15 times longer than ordinary lightbulbs.

You can clearly see the difference when you look at something under an OTT-LITE bulb and then look at it under the light from an ordinary incandescent bulb. The bulbs and an assortment of lamps are now available to consumers.


The 18 Watt TrueColor FlexArm Plus Lamp ($149.95) is ideal for desktop use. The lamp also comes with a clamp-on feature and can be easily rotated on its base. The 18 Watt bulb should provide enough light for virtually any desktop.

The 13 Watt TrueColor Magnifier Lamp ($119.95) has a 2X magnifier that makes precision work easier and more accurate. The lamp provides enough light to replace up to a 75 watt incandescent bulb and is ideal for arts, crafts, hobbies, and sewing.

The 20 Watt Swirl Bulb ($49.95) fits standard incandescent sockets and replaces up to a 100 watt incandescent bulb.
