They call it a breakthrough in LED lighting technology, touted it as the most energy-efficient lamp in the world --
Jimmy Chu received a bachelor\'s degree in science from the University of Toronto.

He has more than seven years of experience as a technical consultant.
He worked with fellow T graduates Christian Yan and Tom Rodinger\'s colleagues to develop light bulbs using their scientific and engineering background.
What is NanoLight?
This is a kind of light that uses only 12 watts of electricity but produces more than 1,600 lumens, equivalent to 100-
Incandescent lamps in Watt.
Lumens measure the brightness of the bulb.
\"The reception is amazing,\" Chu told the Star from San Diego, where he worked as a technical consultant full time.
His two other partners are trying to build an assembly line in China.
These products are posted on the Kickstarter website.
The three partners met at the University of Toronto, who worked for the University of Toronto\'s Solar Vehicle Team.
After they parted ways, they were reunited about three years later.
