LEDs – Innovation Begins with Imagination
LED lighting has come a long way and continues to progress. There are so many creative ways to use LEDs and the possibilities are exciting. Today we bring to you some of the current trends in LEDs.
Although it may not be legal in some countries, LEDs are used by many to liven up their vehicles. LED strips can be used to line the interior doors, floors, and roof of most vehicles. There are also ways to modify the exterior. Some products already come equipped with LEDs and have been for many years. LED-based headlights are one feature that has been around for a while.
The LED headlight is becoming a popular DIY project found in most high-end cars. LED lights in tail-lights, under glow, signal lights, license plate frames, side mirror kits, hood scoop kits, grille kits, cup holder kits, wheel well kits, and tailgate bars are also wide spread. You can essentially make you car light up like it’s from the movie Tron.
A small, but popular, DIY modification is the replacement of valve caps on the tires. Valve caps can be replaced with a rather affordable LED cap with a built in motion sensor. The LED only activates when the tire is in motion. It generates a ring of light around the rim. This is probably one of the coolest and cheapest DIY vehicle modifications. Before you try this out, make sure to review the legal implications.
If you haven’t heard of Emazing lights yet, look them up. Using their own custom LED chip they have created a revolutionary product that gives people the ability to give “light shows”. The product is a pair of gloves with LED chips in the fingertips and palms. The LED chips glow and flash according to how the user has them programmed. The user then “dances” or “gives a light show” to a song that is playing. The result is a really cool and colorful “dance”. These have been seen everywhere within pop culture, especially at music festivals, local bars, and dance clubs. Aside from gloves, LEDs are being integrated into everyday clothing!
There are LED belt buckles, hoodies, shirts, hats, glasses, shoes, and even socks and… Underwear. Halloween is also a fantastic time to light up the night! It is becoming increasingly popular to accentuate your costume with a few lights here and there. Who knows, maybe in the future the human race will be sporting brightly-lit clothing all of the time!
Another great example of the diverse applications of LED lighting is their usage in architecture. This makes them more attractive to the human eye. A lot of companies are now lining the sides of skyscrapers and buildings with LED strip lighting. There is even a tower being built called the Infinity Tower in South Korea. This tower will use state-of-the-art LED lighting and cameras to create the effect of disappearing. The tower, which has been under design since 2004, got the green light for construction in 2013.
Aside from making buildings look cool, LED lighting is also used to help with the construction of structures. Replacing conventional light sources like floodlights and headlamps with LED bulbs ensures a safer alternative. It is safer because they last longer and are more durable. Thus there is less chance of an accident occurring like a headlamp going out or getting broken. LEDs mimic the sun and are more natural for us to use in order to see compared to other sources of light. These are only SOME of the ways LED lighting can used. There are many many more..
