An omnidirectional light emitting device is provided. An example device includes a flexible substrate (102) having a substrate length, a first substrate surface (1022), and a second substrate surface (1024). The flexible substrate is configured to be flexibly wrenched about a longitudinal axis that is parallel to the substrate length. The example device further includes a plurality of LED packages (104) disposed on the first substrate surface (1022). Each LED package of the plurality of LED packages (104) is configured to emit light outward from the flexible substrate (102).
F21K 9/232 - Retrofit light sources for lighting devices with a single fitting for each light source, e.g. for substitution of incandescent lamps with bayonet or threaded fittings specially adapted for generating an essentially omnidirectional light distribution, e.g. with a glass bulb
F21S 4/24 - Lighting devices or systems using a string or strip of light sources with light sources held by or within elongate supports flexible or deformable, e.g. into a curved shape of ribbon or tape form, e.g. LED tapes
