Putting aside today’s technical restrictions, Beneq Oy (Espoo, Finland), a manufacturer and supplier of production and research equipment for thin film coatings, has encouraged students from Aalto University's Product Architecture Design course to imagine novel use cases for its Lumineq transparent electroluminescent displays.
They've come up with novel ideas about integrating the thin displays (obtained through atomic layer deposition), turning every household item into on-demand data feeds.
In the applications envisaged by the students, window panes turns into contextual displays, a mug provides orientation in the office maze or a smart home is packed with the displays integrated into whiteware and furniture.
