Coming soon: Glowing walls made from graphene

from DVICE:

Scientists in Sweden and the USA say they have developed lighting panels using the wonder material graphene, which one day could make the basic lamp redundant.

The material can be fashioned into large energy efficient flexible sheets called LECs (light emitting electromechanical cells) that can cover an entire wall or ceiling, filling the room with an adjustable and even source of light.

We’ve seen how OLED technology promises a similar approach to lighting, but the scientists say the graphene panels are much cheaper to produce, and don’t contain the metal alloy indium tin oxide that makes OLED panels tricky to recycle.

  1. I’m wondering what kind of wattage it is currently (pun intended) taking or estimated to take for a wall of that sort. Is there any info on that?
