Researchers are getting closer to finding a light source to compete with incadescent lighting. If successful, they could provide lighting that reduces energy requirements by 20%.
Next stop is to find a plastic that does not allow any moisture as current versions of the light source degrade in the presence of moisture. For you plastic makers out there, lets get to work!
Perfect light source invented – vnunet.com: “‘With a future emphasis on manufacturing technology, this structure may provide an important, low-cost and efficient means that will replace incandescent lighting in many different applications.'”
