Travel back to 2010 and a device created by YouTube tinkerer Forssa1 that combined RGB LED lights and a high speed gyroscopic spinning gimbal to either (a) teleport to random locations in the galaxy, (b) mesmerise stoners or (c) tear a hole in the space time continuum.

You be the judge.


Japanese dance crew XTRAP break out the LED gloves to show off their impressive finger-tutting skills.

And if you liked that, here’s an equally impressive solo performance.


Behold: the all-dominating C Seed 262 – the largest 4K widescreen TV on the planet.

A screen diagonal of 262 inches (nearly 22 feet) or 6,65 meters; ten integrated high-end speakers for 9.1 cinema surround; an integrated 4k media server and a custom fabric cover (disguising the ultra black screen as a huge painting when not in use) that folds back with a touch of the remote to reveal the enormous ultra high definition LED gogglebox.

Yours for a trifling €477,000.

A segment from Afterglow, which, according to producers Sweetgrass, has been hailed as:

…one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national government’s worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering. Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it’s two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure.

Fair enough.

Here’s the full film.



What started out as a 2012 April Fool’s skit from Thinkgeek is now an actual thing you can nearly buy.

The Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie (€88 but currently out of stock) is a garment fitted with a speaker box, 32 LED lights and a sensor board allowing you to bust nine spells before being pummelled to the ground by concerned onlookers.
