Researchers at Wake Forest University recently developed a revolutionary new type of light bulb! Forget the days of fragile glass and toxic mercury – these amazing new bulbs use nanotechnology to create a moldable light-emitting polymer. According to the developers, this new technology utilizes field-induced polymer electroluminescent (FIPEL) technology to create a soft white full spectrum light that theoretically could last a decade. They’ve already partnered with a manufacturer and the product is set to hit the shelves sometime next year.
