Flat & Efficient Bulbs
Researchers have developed an ultra thin panel which illuminates using charged plasma, similar to fluorescent bulbs, injected into micro pockets within standard aluminum foil, sandwiched between plastic, glass, or crystal. This technology can be manufactured in any size in many shapes, and most importantly, its fairly inexpensive. The sheets are thinner than a sheet of LEDs, more efficient than incandescent bulbs (and fluorescent bulbs in the near future), and can be produced in many colours. the designers have founded a company called Eden Park Illumination and hope to have a marketable product in the next two years.
