Alkilu Kickstarts Affordable OLED Lighting Project

Alkilu, a U.S. based company is ambitiously raising funds to launch an affordable OLED lighting product, Aurora All-Terrain light. The LEDinside editorial team found at Lighting Japan 2014, OLED panel pricings can range from US$50-US$ 192.08 a piece. The Aurora All-Terrain pricing of US$ 74 for early birds falls somewhere in between.

However, the company did note in its comparison of LED to OLED technology, that while OLED offers diffused surface light and radiates nearly zero heat, the technology is still behind in terms of lighting efficacy.

With 27 days to go on its Kickstarter project, Akilu has raised US$ 2,077 out of pledged US$ 50,000. The company will only receive funding if it meets its pledged target.
