Comments Off on Lexus unveils mind-blowing car covered with 41,999 LEDs

Here’s something you’ve probably never seen before: a vehicle covered with 41,999 LED lights. Lexus engineers were having way too much fun when they created the 2017 LIT IS , a psychedelic vehicle that changes colors in a snap and responds music with a mind-blowing light show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8jSdgT3Drc&feature=youtu.be The funky LIT IS is meant to turn heads. The car is covered with enough LED strips to span half a mile if they were arranged end to end. In numbers, the car has 57 pixels per meter and 55 megabits per second for streaming, and the LEDs on the car generate 175,000 lumens.

Another mode reacts to music , allowing the car to sync to any tune. The third responds to a gaming console controlled by a user. The car looks super cool, but why go to all the effort to apply 41,999 LEDs by hand? Lexus designed the Lexus LIT IS for UK singer Dua Lipa’s “Be the One” music video . “Through this responsive technology and the animations, an expressive car was turned into an actual vehicle for expression,” Lexus said in a statement. The car company effusively describes their LIT IS as a “character and visual anchor” in the music video’s story. Unfortunately you won’t be able to purchase the stunning LIT IS anytime soon. While such a vehicle would be way too distracting on today’s roads, we’ll hold on to the hope that once all cars are autonomous , we’ll be able to trick out our rides with 41,999 LEDS. For now, we’re left with just one question: why didn’t Lexus apply that last LED light to cover the car with an even 42,000 LEDs? We may never know. Via The Verge Images via Lexus

Comments Off on "Plastic State of Mind" Music Video Helps Get Plastic Bags Banned (Video)

Image via YouTube video I attended the first ever San Francisco Green Film Festival this weekend and mixed in among the serious documentaries about everything from precious metal mining to bird conservation were a few choice shorts that thankfully use a little comedy and music to disseminate disturbing information. Top among my favorites was this music video parody on the impact of plastics.
