GE has been working on a prototype OLED (organic light emitting diode) "light source" technology. OLED is currently "gaining momentum" for things such as "cell phones, portable media players and even some computer monitors". However, OLED can also be used to "generate a meaningful source of illumination."
"GE is now working on ways to drive the production cost of OLED technology down to a point where it could become a practical substitute for other sources of illumination. Since OLED technologies are flexible and can be engineered to change colors, there is potential for all sorts of unique lighting and display applications."
Implications - Today's eco-conscious consumer is constantly on the lookout for new ways to infuse daily life with environmental concerns.
