graphene_lightbulb-590x330

With grapheme continuing to be the next big thing in industrial design, it was only a matter of time before someone brought the material into the world of lighting. 

Graphene continues to be held up as a wonder material set to revolutionize many areas of tech in the future. However, even something as game-changing as graphene has to start small, and its first major commercial success looks set to be a light bulb. In recent years we’ve been moving to ever more efficient lighting. Where as incandescent bulbs used to require 60W to produce a decent amount of light, you can now buy a cheap LED equivalent that requires around 10W and lasts 10x longer. Now, UK company Graphene Lighting PLC has managed to improve upon that by using graphene to enhance an LED light bulb. More from Geek.
