You wanna talk about LEDs? Let's talk about LEDs: how about 60 million of them covering the entirety of a massive spherical airship, capable of floating overhead and distracting onlookers with a new kind of multimedia advertising, á la Blade Runner (or, if you prefer, Futurama). Apparently the Air Genie would call for a solid $36 million in LEDs alone, which would burn a kilowatt of power as the globe floats through the air containing nearly 800,000 cubic feet of helium inside its 41,000 square foot facade. What a bold new world; bigger, better rendering after the break.
