  1. Gorgeous Heng Balance Lamp boasts unique magnetic switch mechanism Li Zanwen won the Red Dot Award 2016 for the HENG. The two balls in the wooden frames serve as switches of the lamps. As we raise the the lower ball, the two balls would be drawn together magnetically. They would float in the air and when they reach a balance, the light would be turned on. This new way of interaction brings joy to our monotonous life. It's a new and interactive way to brighten up your room!
  2. Osram LED pillars provide the basis for Smart City networking Modern LED City Light pillars equipped with the Street Light Control system and Einstone technology from Osram were installed in a city-wide intelligent network to form the basis for the Wipperfürth Smart City project. Luminaires transmit information via Bluetooth signal that is then recorded and processed by the new WippApp. Smartphone users that have downloaded the app can access a diversity of information such as offers from retailers, information about companies and much more. The town of Wipperfürth began to upgrade its complete road lighting across several construction stages to energy-efficient LED technology in 2010. Now the Hanseatic town in "Bergisches Land" has created a further pioneering project together with Osram. In addition to further LED modernisation, the project also aims at intelligently networking the urban road lighting. The photometric base unit for intelligent LED road lighting is modern City Light pillars from Siteco equipped with the efficient 540 Plus LED module. To make the nocturnal appearance of the town even more appealing, the pillars have a supplementary linear RGB module that can be individually controlled with the Street Light Control software. This enables specific coloured light scenarios to be created in the city centre. The complete software infrastructure is stored in a cloud. An Osram Einstone transmitter is also integrated in the lower area of the luminaire’s top unit. This emits a Bluetooth signal that is received by smartphones and can be used with a corresponding app. Einstone technology enables site-related services by linking it with the Wipperfürth app, and users of the app can simply and conveniently access location-specific special features, the offers of associated retailers and general information. "Street luminaires offer the ideal infrastructure for this because they’re distributed throughout a town or city in a tight grid," said Andreas Pickelein, Project Manager, Osram Lighting Solutions. "Power is also available. When the luminaires light up the road at night the Einstone battery recharges, enabling the device to have sufficient operating voltage during the day" he added. The extensive range of Smart City functions for urban lighting can also be expanded, for example by integrating environment sensors or sensors helping users when searching for parking spaces.

  3. LEDs light up a homemade ice rink In 2016, a homeowner from Minnesota in the USA attempted to freeze waterproof LED lights in a backyard ice rink. The man who created the ice rink actually owns a flooring business and decided to convert his backyard tennis court into an ice rink during the winter. (Source) His wife pitched him the idea that it should have LED lights in the flooring. The man then went on to find LED lights and created an ice rink that illuminates different colours while skating. You can see a video of the ice rink below.

  5. The Wooden Light Bulbs I've been always fascinated with the warmth of wood and the brightness of light. The combination of those two can give only a beautiful effect. Here is a video showing the building process step by step. More info: instructables
  6. Rustic Live Edge Log Slice Lazy Susan with LED Lighting Doing some work on the raw log slices and adding a bearing and some led lighting gives the nice mix of rustic meets modern to make a Rustic Live Edge Log Slice Lazy Susan with LEDs! More info: instructables
  7. DIY LED Desk Lamp This cool desk lamp is made with LED strip lights and maple. It features a very simple design where the wood is really in focus and has a remote control that attaches to the back of the lamp. This lamp would be great in a lot of different settings, and of course you could use whatever wood you have on hand. More info: instructables
  8. Smart Bluetooth LED glasses EASE OF USE Download the CHEMION app to your iOS or Android device and turn on your glasses. Look for the pairing code in the app and you’re in! That’s just about all there is to pairing these guys. Once you have them paired you can control many features from the app or just use the power button to scroll through the presets on the glasses. The presets include hearts, waves, fireworks, GO!!! and a crazy triangle pattern. When you dig deeper into the app you’ll find you can make custom text, use the EQ, create drawings (tricky to do) and explore other users’ presets. Text mode is probably the easiest, just type in the text you want to appear on the glasses and tap it when done. The text will automatically transfer over to the glasses from the app. The EQ feature uses the mic on your phone to listen to the noise around you and show an LED EQ on the glasses, this is great where you have music at a party. The creator mode has you drawing things across a grid of pixels which represent the LEDs, which is a bit harder to master but could be fun if you do. Once you have something programmed in you do not have to have your phone on for it to work. Just program it and put your phone away. If you want to change things up, you will have to pull out the phone and enter new parameters. Overall, using the glasses isn’t hard at all, once you have them paired and you dig into the app for a bit, it all comes together quickly. Source: chemi-on

  10. RGB Shades: Programmable LED Glasses What are RGB LED Shades? They're programmable shutter shade sunglasses with an array of 68 full-color LED pixels on the front. The LEDs can show different colors by mixing levels of Red, Green, and Blue...just like the screen you're using to read this. Although the LEDs are very bright from the outside, they're almost invisible from the inside; you can see out just fine. A programmable microcontroller (Arduino-compatible) chooses the color of each pixel to display a wide range of colorful animations.
  11. JARDINS DO PALACIO Cristal 30 vertical light tubes were place along the margin of the lake and different light composition were pre-program. The result was a set of different light/shadow animated sequences that interact with the natural elements of the surrounding space. Source: lednews.lighting
  12. Ken Burns Bridge Located over a lake that teems with swimmers and boaters during the summer, the Ken Burns Bridge can be viewed by motorists, boaters, swimmers and residents around the lake. Elegant, curved arches are enhanced with color-changing light below deck, while above deck, four 50' tall sail-shaped gateways become color-changing nighttime icons, celebrating holidays, seasons, sports victories and special events. The bridge opened to great acclaim, winning the hearts of residents and becoming a local landmark. In addition to the pre-programmed events, the lighting has been used to express solidarity with France after the terrorist attacks there and to mourn Prince's untimely death. Transparent during the day and visible from all angles at night, the gateway sails welcome motorists and pedestrians to the City of Worcester and Town of Shrewsbury. By way of a custom user interface and pre-programmed events, the owner can create both static and kinetic color-changing events. Source: lednews.lighting
