flat light bulb

from designboom:

flat bulb
is designed by korean designer joonhuyn kim. unlike ordinary bulbs its volume is 1/3 smaller, reducing the cost of packaging and transport. its slim shape allows bulbs to be easily stacked and prevents breakage as it does not roll. his work was on display as part of 100% design tokyo.

I wonder if it distributes even light. I imagine the light would distribute most where the flat sides are facing.

How do you screw in a flat lightbulb though?

That sounds like a corny childrens joke, but it’s a legit question given the design.
