The article discusses the solid-state lighting evolution that is currently happening in China as of October 2005. The revolution is the transition, now under way, from Edison's light bulb to tiny chips called light-emitting diodes. It began with niche applications such as traffic lights and displays. But industry experts predict that energy-efficient light-emitting diodes will sooner or later sweep away all other forms of lighting, up to and including household lights.
