OLED Wallpaper Could Be The Future Of Lighting

It’s the Star Trek-inspired future we were promised — walls that glow and change colour, perhaps with just a gentle voice command. And it’s finally (almost) possible thanks to a series of advances in OLED sheets. This new lighting solution also uses half as much energy than existing fluorescent lights. It is, however, pretty expensive.


Inventors Of The Blue LED Inside Nearly Every Device You Own Win Nobel Prize

There’s pretty good chance you have a piece of this year’s physics Nobel prize-winning invention in your pocket. The blue light-emitting diode (LED) is found in the screens of millions of phones as well as our bright, new energy-efficient LED lightbulbs. Today, the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to the three scientists who made this revolutionary discovery.


New LEDs Promise To Make Your Smartphone Screen 400% Clearer

The most advanced LED screens look amazing compared to what was on the market even a couple of years ago. But a Princeton engineer found a cheap new way of making LEDs not only brighter and more efficient but also five times as clear. It even makes them last longer.


This Lamp Is A Line Of Light That You Can Twist To Your Heart's Content

In the coming LED revolution, lightbulbs will no longer have to be lightbulbs. LEDs, which are just little points of light, can be arranged into any shape you want, and the Swiss design firm Shibui has decided place them in a simple, straight line. Meet Linelight.


These Swirly Light Paintings Look Like A Flash-Forward To The Rapture

Despite predictions to the contrary, we have yet to experience any kind of global rapture here on earth. Should believers ever get beamed up to the heavens, I kind of imagine it would be in the kind of illuminated vortices created and snapped by British photographer Martin Kimbell.


Monster Machines: This Huge Vertical Farm Glows Under Countless LED Suns

Chicago, Illinois, isn’t exactly a major player in US food production anymore, but that could soon change if companies like Green Sense Farms continue to sprout up. With the help of next-gen LED grow lights, the biggest indoor commercial vertical farm in the US can produce masses of produce regardless of the weather outside.


This Smart LED Bulb Will Lull You To Sleep By Mimicking The Sun

Sleep is important. It’s so important that some people are willing to spend lots (and lots) of money so that they snooze better. Those people are likely to love the new Drift light by Saffron. This smart LED bulb is designed to improve sleep by casting warmer light and mimicking sunsets.


LED Tubes Will Make Fluorescents Seem Old-Fashioned

Cree, front-runners in the scramble to replace traditional forms of illumination with greener LED sources, has just announced the release of a new type of tube light designed to tackle one of the biggest energy hogs in the corporate world: fluorescent overhead lights.


Nanoparticle Panels Will Bring Blue Skies Indoors

Skylights are so 1986. Now it doesn’t matter if the weather outside is dark and dreary, or even if it’s midnight, for that matter: Thanks to this LED panel which replicates cloudless skies, you’ll feel like you’re bathed in warm sunshine.


LED Fingernails That Actually Flash When An NFC Signal Is Nearby

Well, here’s an absolutely ridiculous fashion trend. Japan’s Takara Tomy Arts has created a collection of stick-on fake fingernails featuring embedded LEDs and tiny antennas that light up whenever the wireless NFC functionality of a nearby smartphone is being used.
