Holiday Parties Are on the Rise

And like a busy superhero (or Santa Claus) might, we are doing all we can to get out those Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, and-all-other-holidays/birthdays-in-between, their due respect and light-up toys.

Illuminated

Welcome to the week, my Illuminati, the Illuminated ones. Not that Illuminati, the other ones, the ones who like to have fun. Anyway, since you are illuminated, it wouldn’t hurt to get you illuminated further, right? Last week, we not only updated you on what was to come, but now I have other announcements: Our first commercial is ready to …

Safe Fireworks: They Light Up 4th of July But They Do Not Burn

Devo, Flashing Blinky Lights, and You

So, our coworkers went to DEVO event with our futuristic sunglasses and here’s how their day went: DEVO on Friday was insane. Look at us with our Multicolor Tube Necklaces and Futuristic LED Sunglasses! Both of those items were huge hits with the crowd. One guy even tried to trade me a cupcake for the necklace.

Crazy Day! Blinked, Almost Missed It.

A long, winding, whacky and wild day it has been. That being said, I have had some chances to check out some great light-inspired video. Check it. This is made all with LEDs: With some craftiness and a bit of computer technology, anyone can utilize our blinkies in a way such as this, I tell you what. On a side …
