Is print your own lighting now a reality?
Rohinni uses ink and small LED lights to print ‘red blood cell’ sized diodes onto a conductive layer. The diodes are randomly dispersed onto the material, and light up when connected to an electronic current.
Rohini’s Lightpaper solution, which does not require light sources or bulbs, could eventually enable people to print and design their own lights.
One application for the paper thin LED is printing illuminating lampshades that would not require additional light sources or bulbs.
Other potential applications include illuminating logos on mobile phones, lighting installations on walls, smart watches and wristband notifications.
Lightpaper-based products are expected to be launched by mid-2015.
