Pliable Light Producing Sheets

Council, houses new(ish) facelift v, via Heritage Perth. Now a welcome, dominant piece of Perth’s skyline.

Here’s an idea, the following via Bloomberg,

“General Electric Co. scientist Anil Duggal is working on light-producing sheets that may soon outshine the bulb.

Duggal, …, says he may be about a year away from producing durable and green lighting that is neither incandescent nor fluorescent.
(it) will come in rolls of flexible sheets less than 2.5 centimeters thick, and Duggal says their energy efficiency now matches compact fluorescents, with room for improvement. Their pliability opens the door to light- producing furniture, wallpaper, or ceiling paper, and items that have yet to be imagined…”
