These include flat light sources for better recognition of directional and warning signs or as a basis for illuminated signs, or loudspeakers for ambient and warning sounds or as part of personal communication equipment.
They can be integrated with textiles. Due to their low power consumption they can be used directly on humans. They are flexible and at the same time offer an even radiation over the surface
