Lightpaper: The thinnest LED light on the planet
Consider the LED lights . Positive, negative, a pinch of energy and you have light. Now, imagine that the LEDs can be mixed with ink and printed on a conductive foil thin as paper without losing functionality. Well, imagine no more: The company Rohinni calls Lightpaper that will hit the market in mid-2015.
Some solutions are manifested before the problem. That’s what was said about the laser at the time and thought with LED technology .One thing is that the practice range theory, quite another is to find the ideal practical applications. The latter part of the equation is the most important and which is usually recognized as happened in the case of blue LED . Today we can place LED’s almost anywhere , however, what we could do with LED technology thin as a sheet of paper ? Several minds must shout“decoration! Architecture! Advertising! “ and are probably correct in doing so. But we need that”paper light” reality, both for industry and trade before it gets into the hands of enthusiastic personal initiatives. Welcome to Lightpaper .
Its creator Rohinni no word is not saved: “The thinnest LED light of the world” is what they post on their site. What once demanded tin and a PCB, now needs as much a printer. The technical details are scarce, but Lightpaper would be based on a special blend of ink and LED lights. This mixture is printed on a conductive surface (or conductive if preferred) , before being sealed between two additional layers. The diodes are as large as red cells and its location is random, which the company expects to optimize for a more uniform light source. Lightpaper is cheaper than the OLED technology and a duration of twenty years is anticipated.
This obviously makes us think of the “backlight” televisions and monitors, although the CMO of Rohinni,Nick Smoot said they are not a priority. The idea is that Lightpaper be installed in places where it can make a big difference in the shortest possible and illuminate the logo on mobile devices or replace traditional car lights time. That means DIY enthusiasts will have to wait a bit to lay their paws on Lightpaper … unless someone negated clone.
