Well it seems that LED lighting will soon be replaced by potentially three different types technologies, two new, and one dating back to the 50's that being fiber optics the other two have multi uses and are only discovered in more recent years, they are carbon webbing and silica webbing.

Was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts regarding the future of LED lighting - both the production and end-user side? I've noticed more and more residential and commercial spaces converting to this form of lighting system, as it is more cost-effective in the long run and more sound for the environment (although the change is being implemented on a very small scale). Still, for LED lighting to be on par with the variety available in current lightning systems, there is a long way to go - which is why testing/production costs are so high.

Solid state LED lighting is most assuredly a strong field for the future lighting market but much like solar energy there is a massive disconnect between the current costs of production and what the consumer is willing to pay. Still it is sagacious of Cree to get into this eventually lucrative business early. Jon http://www.evosite.co.uk/ Website Designers

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
