Philips: the light bulb will die soon

Philips claims lightbulb manufacturing will soon disappear to be replaced by solid state LEDs.
Solid state lighting is a good example of future trends. An entire industry producing lightbulbs will vanish in favour of LEDs which will be able to match the colours of furniture or even clothes. Philips has woven LEDs into cushions and into fabrics. You can send an SMS to a light emitting cushion with the message I love you.
