Researchers at General Electric (www.ge.com) have announced "a major breakthrough in a new lighting technology." Based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), the solid-state lighting technology uses thin sheets of plastic-like material that emit light when powered by electricity. It could be made in an inexpensive, roll-to-roll manufacturing process. The goal: sheets of paper-thin lighting devices that can be applied like wallpaper.
The transformative nature of designing and making things was the overarching, common theme at separate conferences held in Boston by two giants in the PLM space: Autodesk, with its Accelerate 2015, and Siemens’s Industry Analyst Conference 2015.
