Illuminating wallpaper could replace lightbulbs

275x250.jpgExperts claim that wallpaper which emits light could replace lightbulbs, within the next five years.

A Welsh firm has just been given a £454,000 grant by the Carbon Trust to develop their eco-friendly OLED technology.

Bosses at Lomox claim their designs can be used as a thin film to coat almost any surface and light up when a small electric charge is passed through them.

It uses only a fraction of the power of traditional lightbulbs and could be to make almost any item glow and change colour with a natural looking light.

Eventually the lighting OLED film could be used to put TV screens on any surface… and mean you can change your wallpaper at whim.
A spokesperson for Lomox said: "The replacement of existing light sources with OLEDs will reduce energy consumption substantially (by 60%) causing a major reduction of CO2."
