What I like about this and other stories is that some day we'll be able to 
have light sources of any shape size and colour. Probably fully controllable 
in intensity and colour too.

Another big plus point will be safely. These will be DC powered rather than 
AC, so no need for high dangerous voltages or broken glass hazards. 
Therefore less of a fire risk.
Also DC electromagnetic fields don't travel as far as AC ones. So less 
electrical interference.

No reason why we couldn't have a light bulb of say 12 inches square with a 
picture on it we control remotely as well. I'd like that.

It's getting the light efficiency up there with incandescents will be the 
key point.
