That's the dumbest thing I've seen in a while, why oh why but the chips in the bulb instead of the socket? Pure idiotic waste.
LED bulbs last years so it's not as wasteful as you think. Also, by putting them in the bulbs, you can use IoT bulbs with any lamp. Lamps are expensive after all. And who knows if the limited lamps they put the chip in would suit your decor?
