LED-C turns Lite-Brite green with envy


It's getting hard to distinguish all the different LED technologies out there from one another, but Light Beam Industries' so-called LED-C system looks like it may have a shot at standing out from the crowd, with it promising to let you create any color LED you like. Light Beam managed that feat by creating a "monolithic component" that combines a standard monochromatic or white LED with a "solid state lighting source" that re-emits the light in the color of your choice. The system also promises to let you generate white light from 3000K to 6000K, and a broader light spectrum than other materials allow, including, as LightBeam points out, the deep red that "Coca-Cola and Budweiser require for their signage." That should also tell you something about the technology's target market although, from the looks of it, it seems like it could also find its way into an updated version of a certain childhood favorite "signage" system.
