LED headlamps are coming.

Interesting article about LED headlamps slowly getting into mainstream. So, in my lifetime I will see technology change from incandescent to halogen to xenon and to LED.

Does this mean that Rochester can stop putting all that calcium carbide into water to get the acetylene to burn in the carbide headlites on Jack Benny's Maxwell??

I remember these headlights from coal mining industry. Mixing acetylene with some silver salt makes a little kaboom, especially in friends' cigarettes, yes, I did it, but it was in the last Century.

When I was a kid my dad farmed with horses, My brother law farms and the tractor he uses looks like a small building on wheels and that is in 63 years. I remember driving my VW with its 6 volt pretend head lights and now my Colorado on high beams you could read a paper siting 100 yards in front of the truck.
