"TreeHugger's infatuation with light emitting diodes (LEDs) has been long and diverse; from practical applications like traffic lights in India to whimsical products like LED cufflinks, there isn't much we don't like 'em for. A new company stands to take this kind of technology to another level. Firefly Lighting Innovations is a brand new company that utilizes electroCeramescent technology, also known as "light emitting ceramic device" or LECD. Calling it "the latest breakthrough in solid state lighting technology," LECD boasts many of the same traits as our favored LEDs: very durable, virtually maintenance free and consume extremely low levels of energy; LECD products also do not generate heat, keeping them cool to the touch and the fire danger low. The company's first product to the consumer market is the Firefly Light Tray which creates a soft, non-obtrusive glow and consumes extremely low levels of energy, costing only pennies a year to operate."

in a forum where 99,99999 % of the people are sacrificing runtime for sheer output,
such a device might not get too much of appreciation
