LED is no longer unfamiliar to us, instead, it is very common in our daily lives. LED lights in the office, LED street lights on the road, LED colorful screens and billboards in the streets and alleys, LED TVs at home, etc., it seems that these are all that LED lights can do, without many surprises. But, wait, do not underestimate them. There are many LED light applications that we have never understood. The LED market is not just staying in the present. The future of this industry is still full of challenges and opportunities, and it has huge development potential. Do not believe? Then let us read on.
The following is a list of some innovative applications of LED lights. After reading these, I think you will get to know LED lights better, let’s dive in…
Innovations in LED Light Applications
Smart LED Street Lights
LED street lights have been applied in the world for a long while, but along with the development of IoT, LED street lights have become more intelligent, and they can do much more than just lighting. When they are equipped with sensors like sound and motion sensors, they would light up the road when somebody passes by and dim their lights if there is nobody on the street, which can save more energy and make the city lighting system more efficient. Another example of innovative smart LED street lights is that they can send alarm signals when there is a car accident by combining with a security camera and network. They can make timely responses and then brighten up the light to alarm pedestrians and drivers, and at the same time, upload the scene to the internet which would much helpful for maintaining traffic safety.
The rise of indoor farming and greenhouse farming industries has ensured that people have a sufficient supply of vegetables and fruits throughout the year, breaking the seasonal restrictions on crop growth. And adequate and reasonable light sources are important factors for indoor farming. We all know that light is key for plants’ photosynthesis. In addition, different colors of light have different effects on plants. For example, red light is beneficial to plants’ flowering and fruiting, blue light is conducive to the growth of plant stems and leaves.
For this reason, LED plant grow lights were born. These plant lights can be customized according to different crops to provide more scientific light sources. The use of LED plant grow lights can not only ensure the supply of crops but also has the advantage that the crops are safer and more sanitary, away from chemical pollution. Because they grow indoors, these crops will not be exposed to air pollution and are not prone to insects, no pesticide is required during the cultivation process. MOKOLight has been dedicated to offering LED grow lights for over 10 years, owning a professional R&D team to make sure that all LED grow lights can meet and exceed clients’ expectations. If you still have some queries about LED grow lights, you should contact MOKOLight.
LED lighting is a perfect choice for the medical industry as LEDs will not emit heat radiation that is harmful to people. One of the main applications of LED lights in the medical industry is for newborn jaundice, which is quite common for newborn babies. The babies who get jaundice have skin in a light yellow tone, while the blue LED lights can treat it very well. In addition, LED lights are also helpful for dementia patients. A UK company invented a lighting system that can stimulate the circadian rhythm by imitating daylight to make sure that their biological systems maintain synchronization with each other.
As we all know that a good working environment can allow people to have a better working conditions and at the same time improve work efficiency. There is a company that designed LED virtual sky panels to replace the traditional ceilings, and it turns out that the worker has about 15% higher productivity than before. It mimics the sky with white clouds and trying to make the worker feel that they work in nature.
Apart from this application, have you ever heard about LED wallpaper? Philips developed a LED wallpaper that allows you to change the color and pattern of your wall without difficulty, you will be free from the trouble of picking up the wallpaper color. It is not an easy job when changing wallpaper, but with LED wallpaper, you can make it by a switch. You can change the color tone and pattern to make it fit with different big days such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, or a birthday party. The LED wallpaper would make your home more festive and stylish.
The fashion industry is always changing rapidly. Designers rack their brains and are eager to create new trends. They try to use different materials and styles to differentiate themselves, including the use of LED lights. The brand LumiTop Carina showed a suit with LEDs in the fashion show (as shown in the picture), which immediately attracted the attention of the audience. Then, many designers started to follow the trend to design shoes, dresses, and earrings with LEDs, but the most impressive should be the LED eyelashes, it is said that LED eyelashes can make eyes look bigger, this has yet to be proved, but it is certain that it will make the wearer attract more attention.
In addition to the taillights and reversing lights that we know about, LED lights can also help drivers drive safely. Audi Q7 applied a wing mirror warning system, when other vehicles are very close to you or approaching very fast from behind, the LED signal would alarm the driver, which can be much helpful when the driver changes lanes. Lexus developed a monitoring system to check if the driver is concentrating on driving, the system combined with infrared LEDs and a camera that can capture driver’s facial features, the system would alarm if drivers take their eyes off the road.
Bionic LED Contact Lens
Mentioned about contact lens, the first thing that comes to our mind is that they can improve our eyesight, but have you ever thought that they can also enable us to check the message and email anytime, anywhere? Sounds crazy, right? But it is achievable. A university in Finland developed a prototype of a “bionic” LED contact lens, as they told, in the future, by wearing such kind of LED lens, people can check all information on their computer screen, very impressive and innovative application of LED lights.
The Future of LED Light Applications
This article lists a lot of the creative uses of LED lights. People’s creativity and imagination are limitless. It is difficult for us to guess the next development trend, but we can be sure that the future of the LED light applications is bright. It still has many places worthy of our continued digging. MOKOLight always holds a heart of learning, keeps innovating, and forging ahead. Got any LED projects? Well, we are ready to offer the best solution for you.
