Far-UVC light: A new tool to control the spread of airborne-mediated microbial diseases | Scientific Reports
Interesting results. Far-UVC ultraviolet light at particular intensities appear to be antimicrobial in public settings without being an immediate human health hazard.

Flexiway affordable solar-powered LED lights, replacing kerosene lamps-Flexiway Solar | Solar-powered LED Lights
Neat trick of this solar LED lightbulb is the squares snap together like Legos, allowing you to make larger modular lights out of the same basic component.

Philips wins Dutch Design Award for FreeStreet lighting system
Interesting poleless street lighting system. Uses long cables with embedded LED light clusters parallel to the street. Might not be great for visual clutter, but would be a great match for existing trolley systems.

Jennic Wireless Microcontrollers | Products | Protocol Stacks | JenNet-IP
NXP is opensourcing the JenNet-IP stack for controlling GreenChip equipped LED lights remotely via an IP network (IPv6?). Trying to force a defacto standard in home automation by increasing the install base of nodes of a particular protocol?

A nice little system using LED lighting to also transmit data, combined with a custom small form factor retroreflector/receiver (not much bigger than existing IRda sensors). They are also doing PLC and DC PLC work, so that the overhead lamp assembly contains not only the LED and transmitter encoding circuits, but also a PLC modem for transmitting data over the power supply circuit so you can retrofit into exisitng lighting systems without running new data cables.

Decrease in Nitrate Concentration in Leafy Vegetables Under a Solid-state Illuminator -- Samuoliene et al. 44 (7): 1857 -- HortScience
Interesting research that giving a plant during 10% of it's total light exposure time exposure to a LED light source reduced nitrates, boosted carbohydrates, and appears to have other benefits. 10% exposure means it isn't necessary to build expensive LED lighting for all greenhouse plants (simply rotate their trays through a properly equipped area). This may be applicable to hydroponics.

Solar Roadways
A somewhat bizarre idea to replace asphalt roadways with large glass panels containing solar cells and LED's. The theory goes, if you can get the cost of the panel near the true total cost of asphalt, and can overcome the friction/traction/grip problem of glass and can sufficiently heat and redirect dirt/moisture from rain and snow. Though as someone aptly put, the first ambulance with snow chains to ride over this will make a mess of the panels unless they are stupidly strong, which would negate the cost advantages.

Apparently an alternate use is integrated public banner signs with public address system speakers. Which isn't half bad, until you have to think about how you would integrate luminescent paint for power loss situations...

News Release : SHOWA DENKO K.K.
Someone pointed out that ideal plant growth acceleration under artificial lighting would be 92% red LED's and 8% blue LED's, and that white LED's are a waste of energy. So these special red LED's by SDK would be great for indoor agriculture and specialty photobioreactors for algae production.

Though there will be the inevitable comments about underground growops in a certain variant hemp industry...
