LEDs have begun to be used in a number of different lighting applications, but can be used in places one never thought possible. According to planetsave.com, a group of researchers from Linköping University in Sweden experimented with placing LED lights into paper. Not only are the LEDs on paper, but they grow on the paper. The LEDs “are made from zinc oxide and a conducting polymer and placed on a cyclotene coated piece of paper.” There are still experiments being conducted before allowing this concept to go public.
However, you can purchase LED lit wallpaper. According to mashable.com, tiny points of light illuminate the wallpaper. The lights are able to illuminate because the wallpaper acts as a circuit board. The wallpaper is made by Architects Paper, who has teamed up with lighting designer, Ingo Maurer, to create such a masterpiece. You can get the wallpaper in a variety of patterns and colors, and the LEDs can be dimmed.
