2007-2008 Times Square Ball features bright, efficient L.E.D.s

Times Square Ball 2008

Today's announcement of the L.E.D.-lit 100th Anniversary Times Square Ball on Good Morning, America was interesting - from what I've seen, the new ball is a major technological leap forward and will be a real stunner, and more energy efficient too! It's over twice as bright as previous ones, and yet uses half as much power. It can even play videos and animated sequences. You can even buy a Waterford ornament modeled after the real thing.

It's built on an aluminum frame, and will be covered with Waterford crystals.

L.E.D. technology is revolutionizing the lighting industry. We can expect an increased emphasis on 'green' technologies in the coming years, so we are likely to see greater adoption of this promising technology.

I look forward to even more exciting developments in the years to come. The future's so bright, we're gonna need shades!
