LED the way.

It twists, it bends, it illuminates. Grote Industries' ( LightForm material embeds energy-thrifty light emitting diodes (LEDs) into a pliable 1-mm thick film. Grote says the material consists of a top substrate, bare-die LEDs, a laminating layer, and a bottom substrate. It's powered by a handheld battery pack, and is suited for both interior and exterior vehicle lighting. Grote says it can be applied in a peel-and-stick fashion, eliminating the need to drill holes or otherwise secure it with fasteners. The company is producing limited quantities and plans a commercial launch before the end of 2009.
