It's hard to imagine that those brilliant displays of color can actually be accomplished with a technology that has energy saving ramifications. You're are right Rob. Amazing how far lighting has come.

Nice slide show

That's a wonderful slide show, Chuck.

I particularly liked the Times Square ball and the display at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Lighting certainly looks different these days. And all while reducing the energy consumtion.

Holiday of lights

What a festive way to send out the year. It amazes me how much can be done particularly around color with these LEDs. The Alanta botanicals garden display was really something else and there are no words to describe the Japanese Santa that gets his power source from an electric eel. Eww. In all seriousness though, would these types of displays even been possible using traditional light sources and is the pricetag in doing them with LEDs more expensive, despite the precipitous drop in cost?
