Driverless LEDs perform better and does not flicker

Driverless LEDs perform better and does not flicker

By Candra Marcey, Contributor, BizLED Bureau June 11, 2015: The electronics part of an LED?the driver?seems to be an indispensable part of it. But it?s no longer so. According to experts, drivers are no longer needed to power an LED light. It can now be powered directly from AC mains. These LEDs are also called driver-free AC LEDs. AC LED ...

Colour-changing LED jacket

Colour-changing LED jacket

By BizLED Bureau June 1, 2015: Norwegian design studio Drap og Design has developed a colour-changing LED jacket called Interacket. It is inspired by the colour-morphing ability of squids that blend in with its surroundings. The Interacket jacket lights up according to the colour of the objects the user touches. For example, if you touch a red wall, a red ...
