Oryon Technologies, a creator of innovative next-generation wearable lighting technology marketed under the ELastoLite brand, has signed a product marketing agreement with Sparkfun Electronics to make unique electroluminescent (EL) technology samples more broadly available to wearable technology inventors and developers.

Oryon's patented EL technology creates advanced elastomeric lighting material that is flexible, crushable and water-resistant among other properties. ELastoLite enables thin durable lighting systems that can be applied to textiles or molded onto plastics and other substrates, enabling smart fabric and wearable technology applications unattainable with conventional lighting systems.

Founded in 2003, Sparkfun is an online retail store that sells over 1,800 components for DIY electronics projects.  "Sparkfun helps customers discover their inner inventor," said Dia Campbell, Sparkfun Electronics Techstyle Specialist. "We recognized Oryon's ELastoLite as the type of innovation that would appeal to our customer base, and wanted it on our storefront as quickly as possible."

Beginning late August, consumers and developers can get ELastolite starter kits consisting of EL lamp, circuitry, inverter, connectors and battery pack from the Sparkfun Electronics online catalog as well as through the 380 distributors in the 65 country Sparkfun global network. The company is based in Boulder, Colorado.

"ELastolite inspires innovation, and this agreement helps us meet increasing demand for product," remarked Dan Gulden, Oryon Vice president, Global Business Development. "We typically work with major manufacturers and product development teams, yet recognize there's ELastoLite interest wherever there's creativity. ELastoLiteoffers Sparkfun customers lighting design flexibility for active lifestyle, fashion or entertainment concepts. We can't wait to see what ideas emerge."
