These versatile strings or LED lights are made for signs, displays, entertainment venues, emergency exit lighting and other applications. The LEDs run off 12V dc current, and last longer, use less power, and put out less heat than standard incandescent bulbs. The modules can work alone or in groups of up to 100 units. They are impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental conditions. They can be attached to a surface with either double-sided tape or with two screws per module (not included). Each 1.17 x 0.90 x 0.50-in (29.70 x 22.80 x 12.40mm) module has four sealed wide-angle SpiderLEDs. They come in green (525 mm, 2000mcd), white (7000K, 1300mcd), blue (470mm, 550 mcd), yellow (592mm, 800mcd) and red (636mm, 750 mcd).
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
