Researchers from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg created the device, which gives off white light created through blue, green and red rubber layers covering one blue or UV LED. This renders the same effect as with traditional inorganic LEDs but at a lower cost, the researchers said. Rubber with red, green and blue luminescent proteins used to produce BioLEDs.
