Unplugged aims to develop organic indoor light cells in a freeform shape, sizes and with different colors at a low-cost industrial scale. Organic indoor light cells directly convert natural/artificial light into electricity. Under regular home or office lights, these cells (half the size of an ID card) can generate voltage equivalent to 2-3 AA/AAA batteries, and can also perform well under as low light as a computer screen. Industrially, they can be printed just like newspapers are printed.
