Looking for a fanciful way to dress up your room even more after tossing in a set of ASCII Curtains? Fret not, as designer Jonas Samson has crafted light-emitting wallpaper that’s sure to go over better than that solar iteration you tried years ago. Currently, the technology behind the invention has yet to be divulged, but all those tidbits should get clarified when it goes on display at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. We do know, however, that it removes the need for bulbs in areas that just require basic lighting, and judging by the shots on the creator’s own website, designs could be lit in part, in whole or not at all. Still, don’t write those fixtures off just yet — you do care about resale value, right?
sounds pretty sweet … here’s the guys website who makes it. i can see this thing taking off like crazy. i just wonder how much it is and what the maintenance is of it. If it could be made interactive then the possibilities would get so intriguing i would have to buy some for myself and start making things… like i would line my bathtub+shower with them, carry a sheet with me as a light table incase i needed to trace something, or make Frisbees out of it.
