Fluorescent lights has been a technological dinosaur for so long that they ought to be extinct by now but just kept surviving but not for long. These flickering, humming, fragile yet shady looking light source, will soon be replaced by a new invention from the amazing researchers at Wake Forest University.

It appears these guys have been working round the clock developing a flicker-free, shatterproof alternative to the age-old fluorescent light bulbs or tubes that has been used for large-scale lighting for far too long.

The researchers say the new lighting technology, based on field-induced polymer electroluminescent (FIPEL) technology, does not create the buzz sound associated with fluorescent light bulbs and also gives off soft, white light—not the yellowish glint from fluorescents or bluish tinge from LEDs.
