Light Emittin Wallpaper

A reader writes in –

An enterprising young designer from the Netherlands has invented what has to be the ultimate in home illumination – light emitting wallpaper.

Hmm, from looking at the pic above, I’m guessing he’s not too excited about it – Techradar goes on to explain some of the contruction elements –

“The base material is made from a commercially available product that’s manufactured by a number of companies. What I have done, though, is to apply that technology in a different way.”

Delving deeper, Samson revealed that the wallpaper is constructed by “sandwiching” a number of layers together that combine to produce light:

“The back layer is a silver-based solution that conducts electricity, while the layer above this contains phosphorous pigments that light up. On top of this is a flexible, transparent ITO conductor layer, with regular wallpaper placed on top to act as the final, outwardly visual layer,” he explained.
