For the Love of LEDS
"What comes to your mind when you hear somebody talking about LEDs? If
you're like most people, you probably think of those dim red or
yellowish-green lights on the fronts of stereos and the red digits in alarm
clocks. This website was put here to hopefully change your mind about these
small miracles of quantum technology. For no longer is the LED some dim
little indicator light - and no longer do they only come in red or puke
green. Today's LEDs can be found in just about every color of the spectrum,
and in the invisible regions at each end too. They even come in white, plus
they last 100,000 hours or more before they need to be replaced! Today's
LEDs are bright enough to illuminate an entire room, and are no longer just
a dim red light on a stereo. " - from the website
This is the kind of site which leaves the List in wide-eyed amazement.
Craig Johnson's LED site demonstrates once again how the web provides a
medium for an ordinary individual with a passion and a purpose to reach
vast numbers in order to inform and enlighten.
Is this a mere technological chestnut to many of the List's gentle members?
Perhaps the developments in Light Emitting Diodes has passed under your
radar. If that is the case, you are in for a bit of a surprise.
Slide over to the website for an intriguing display.
