Flat bulb

The flat bulb is slimmer than usual bulbs. Why are bulbs round? When Edison invented the bulb they had to be round because of the way they were blow molded and to help create a vacuum inside.

However, it is possible to make different shapes of bulb now. There are a lot of benefits to this flat bulb. First, The volume is 1/3 smaller than usual bulbs. It will reduce the cost of transport by 1/3 too. Also they can’t roll. we can stack them and we don’t have to worry about them breaking because of rolling.
