Such opportunities are opening up! Here, for example, Irish scientists recently invented the LED with a power reserve of 80 years, and only 15 microns wide. Invisible things look light, airy (even if made of glass and steel).
They do not clutter the space, are indispensable in the interiors of lofts and will look good against the background of concrete walls and surfaces of raw metal.
They are a kind of reflection of our achievements. Indeed, it is only thanks to modern technologies that such an ultrathin and at the same time durable and functional subject can be made. Still, not one laziness, but also the eternal desire to surpass themselves — the engine of progress.
