Commercial LED Lighting – Using LED Light to Improve Your Environment
Commercial LED lighting can be used in a variety of weird and wonderful ways to alter and improve a variety of aspects of life. Here’s a selection of a few of the most unique and interesting ways to use LED to make daily life a little more fun:
LED Virtual Sky – Studies have shown that LED technology can make us happier and more productive, which is what lead to the researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO to come up with the LED virtual sky panels. They are designed to replace the ceiling panels in offices and the LED lights are used to simulate the sky.
The idea behind it is to give workers the sense that they are in a wide open field, which should increase their productivity by up to 15%.
LED Wallpaper – Changing the colour of your wallpaper can be quite a hassle, but how about if you could change it with the flick of a switch? That might just well be possible in the future with this LED wallpaper that has been developed by Philips. It emits a myriad of colour combinations to create a soothing, relaxing glow.
Bionic LED Contact Lens – Traditional contact lenses help to improve your vision, but imagine if you could read your emails right on your retina too! Aalto University in Finland have developed a prototype for a bionic contact lens that could allow us to view augmented reality in the future. It works by transmitting information to a tiny transparent chip containing a single micro-LED, allowing the wearer to see what they could see on a computer screen without the actual computer!
In todays’ world the use of LED is not just confined to lighting up your home, LED technology is being put to many uses in the commercial world. Find out more here – Commercial LED Lighting
