Best of both worlds (LED technology) Answered
People working under Professor John Rogers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have managed to combine the robustness of inorganic LEDs (the kind we use so much here), with the physical flexibility of organic LEDs.
They have devised a new mass-production method that allows large numbers of small LEDs to be picked up by a robotic arm and embedded into a wide variety of other surfaces, including glass and rubber.
The LEDs are bright enough that they can be spread out far enough to be transparent, paving the way for displays built into windows.
This is not new science, just new engineering.
