These looked cool, ultra flexible animated posters. SIGN 2000 Flatlight uses EL (Electroluminescent) to manufacture striking signage. The above picture doesnt do the display justice, animation after the jump. So what exactly is SIGN 2000? This is how Flexmedia explain it:
SIGN 2000 is essentially a flat light bulb sandwich consisting of layers of conductive and non-conductive plastic and a layer of phosphor. The phosphor is laminated between two conductive layers and, as a voltage is applied between the two conductive layers, or electrodes, the phosphor emits light energy. When a high-quality, high-resolution image is printed over the light, it behaves like a backlit sign.

Mechanism

Electroluminescence is the result of radiative rombination of electrons and holes in a material (usually a semiconductor). The excited electrons release their energy as photons – light. Prior to recombination, electrons and holes are separated either as a result of doping of the material to form a p-n junction (in semiconductor electroluminescent devices such as LEDs), or through excitation by impact of high-energy electrons accelerated by a strong electric field (as with the phosphors in electroluminescent displays).

What is El Light
It produces light when phosphor crystals are excited by being exposed to electric current.  Electroluminescent (EL) panels and strips can be found as backlighting for LCDs in pagers, cell phones, watches, and control panels as well as strip lighting for egress, decor architecture, broadcast sets, and much more.

Electroluminescent (EL) light has many benefits:

No filament to break never fails to light!
Flexible
Cool to the touch negligible heat emission
Highly visible in darkness, smoke, fog etc. versus point-sources of light
Easy to look at, pleasing to the eye
Paper thin
Does not impair night vision
Can be seen at greater distances then point source lamps in dark conditions
Low energy consumption (Most efficient light source on Earth!)
No hazardous materials landfill friendly
Maintenance Free

Electroluminescent See-Thru Vinyls

For those places where it is advantageous to have see-thru windows without seeing any trace of the brightly illuminated and/or flashing message on the other side (see the two top images to the right) our Electro-Luminescent See-Thru Vinyls are ideal.

Restaurant chains, International Airports, the Lotteries and others are already loving it. Now, with Perf-Alite. One-Way Electric Vinyl, graphics will remain brilliantly visible even during evening hours, unlike ordinary see thru graphics where the image fades away at night when the lighting intensity inside the store is greater than the level of light outdoors.

Turn any glass surface into a spectacular illuminated display without interferring with vision out of the office

Vehicles can be used as luminous mobile advertising.

Operation
The definition of an EL lamp (Electro Luminescent lamp) is a capacitor structure with a
phosphor sandwiched between two electrodes. One part of the electrode is transparent to
allow light to pass. Once voltage is sent through an inverter across the electrodes it
generates a changing electric field within the phosphor which then causes the phosphor to
light.
It takes anywhere from 100 volts to 400 volts to light an EL lamp. There also has to be a
high enough frequency to light the lamps; this frequency is anywhere from 100 hertz to
1,000 hertz. You get this voltage and frequency using a small inverter which takes the DC
voltage and changes it to AC voltage. The inverter sends out the correct frequency to
allow the lamp to light. The typical power consumption of an EL is less than .25 MA at
115V AC per one square centimeter. When the voltage is increased to an EL lamp the
light then gets brighter; when the frequency is changed the color of the EL lamp changes.
Colors
The color of light emitted from an EL can vary depending on the phosphors that are used.
Some common colors are blue/green and yellow/green, white, blue and orange.
Life
The life of an EL lamp varies based on the way it is used. EL lamps have a half life; once
they reach their half life the brightness starts to fade rapidly. If the light is just being
turned on when you hit a key on a switch the lamp will take a very long time to reach its
half life, approximately 3000-5000 hours depending upon the quality of the phosphor
used. EL lamps are not a good choice if the lamp is on for an extended period of time.
To help expand the life of an EL lamp you can have it fade or flash, this could double the
life of the lamp.
