Light-Emitting Wallpaper Could Replace Light Bulbs

Lomox, a Welsh company, has developed light-emitting wallpaper that uses OLED (organic light emitting diodes) that can be printed on any flat surface and produce light. A low electric current (3 to 5 volts) is used to stimulate the chemicals found in the coating and help it to generate light.

Because the light-emitting wallpaper requires such low voltage to operate, it can be used in many different applications and due to its organic properties, it is actually a fairly eco-conscious and efficient development, though it is fairly costly to produce and won’t be available to consumers until 2012.
