LED lights have been a very eye-catching accessory in some devices, it has long been used by kids on their shoes, some with functions like; when you step on them and the pressure is felt by the LED shoe, it begins to shine with different colors and different forms to make the shoe more attractive. But people don’t really know that LED lights really do more than decorate Christmas trees, modern sports shoes or make items appear nicer. At the moment there may be some improvements being proposed for this technology.
Maybe in your city or somewhere near you, you could find yourself in several seasons (mostly at Christmas) when the trees are decorated with LED lights. The big question is, is there any science to it? Is it really useful? Why do they do it? The answer is simple, it’s for the entertainment and amazement that it brings to people, the LED lights are very striking and go well with almost all the devices and accessories we have today, as long as the color of the LED is compatible (well designed) with the color of the item.
Is it possible to treat Alzheimers?
If you thought that LED lights had no function other than to just shine, you will be surprised to find out LED lights are being considered for use as a possible treatment of Alzheimers and the process is still in the testing phase. “Nature” magazine was one of the magazines that published this remarkable news, it has already been tested in mice with the same disease and yes, it works!!! But it has not yet been tested in people.
So, how is this possible? The procedure which was developed at the University of Massachusetts involves LED lights blinking intermittently in a designed order and timing. Obviously the mice that were used in the experiments had been genetically modified to suffer from this disease, by causing the LED lights to blink intermittently at 40 Hertz they were able to see improvement in the protein of their brains affected by Alzheimer’s, so it has not yet been confirmed to work for patients who were born with the disease or inherited it.
The Lexus IS lined up with LED lights
I guess you must have seen the MTV show “Pimp My Ride” presented by rapper “Xzibit” where he converts a horrible looking car to an eye-catching spectacle equipped with LED lights, screens, speakers, leather seats, a Playstation console and many other things. This was the concept the manufacturers of the LEXUS IS had in mind when they lined it up with 41,999 LED lights, it could just be the perfect car for those who like to show off with the best and most eye-catching car on the streets. The LED lights make the car very flashy and some modes have also been included in the car that make them part of a very important set of functions, we have; the Music Viz mode and Gesture mode.
The fact that it has 41,999 LED lights around the car is not what makes it impressive, what printer is that the Lexus IS has each of these LEDs mounted by hand, just to be well designed and not a badly placed LED , Imagine repairing a shock that damages more than 20,000 LEDs, something disastrous. The new Lexus IS will be present in the year 2017 available for sale, however there are commercial videos where we can see Music Viz mode in which the LEDs are according to the music we are listening to or in Gesture mode where the LEDs will move according to a video game console that will be used to control it.
The cataracts, a spectacle of another level
Niagara Falls is perhaps one of the most beautiful and emblematic places around the world, a great waterfall that many tourists want to visit. About a century ago was the inauguration of LED lights of the Niagara Falls, an incredible show that could be perceived by about 30,000 people without counting the ones that can see it from the city, certainly not something new but imagine that so much work They had some engineers and architects in placing a lot of LED lights inside the falls to see such amazing drop shining.
The innovative thing is that on Thursday, December 1, the technology, colors and resistance of LED lights in Niagara Falls were updated, it is known that it was an investment of almost 4 million dollars in which a ceremony was even made For those who wanted to attend this update of the Niagara Falls. Many of those who attended this event were able to witness the change between the LED lights that were previously and those of now, since 1925 the Niagara Falls lights worked but this very capable update will give you more of another century if they are not updated.
