Philips reached a new milestone in OLED lighting this week: the first AC-powered OLED module.

But the new AC-powered OLEDs can be plugged directly into a standard wall socket, potentially bringing down the cost of the low-energy lights.

In addition to making OLED lights cheaper, Philips‘ advancement purportedly increases design freedom, improves end-design reliability, and allows OLEDs to come to market more quickly.

OLEDs are still too expensive for commercial lighting, but Philips’ discovery might just change that. And once ultra-attractive OLEDs become cheap enough for mass consumption, few people will complain about the death of incandescent bulbs
