The prototype and DIY version of the Visualight use 5w RGB LEDs. The production versions will use 10w LEDS. The color demo video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsOGEmYUIX4 shows the 10w LED. I'll take some comparison photos and upload them ASAP.
There are a lot of differences. The main differences are that the Visualight is open source and that each bulb contains its own Wi-Fi module, which allows the bulbs to operate completely independently.
