Firefly 870 LED Prototype

Jason Krugman

A wind responsive LED screen

Firefly 870 LED Protoype pairs 870 wind switches with 870 super-bright white LEDs to form an 8' x 8' grid. As the wind blows over the piece, the wind switches trigger each LED individually, creating a stunning sparking effect in response to the wind. If every LED were to turn on, the entire piece would consume as much electricity as a single 60-Watt light bulb.

Patent Pending.
