US scientists have invented a light source that could successfully substitute light bulbs we use everywhere today. The innovative light source represents the organic light-emitting diode - OLED. It emits a brilliant white light when you attach it to an electricity supply.

It is possible to print the material in wafer thin sheets that could be used to transform walls, ceilings and even furniture into lights. The OLEDs do not heat up like traditional light bulbs, implying they are remarkably energy-efficient and last longer. Moreover, the light produced by the OLEDs is more like natural daylight in comparison to bulbs.
