100.000 LEDs on Tokyo River = amazing

This weekend Panasonic was sending 100.000 EVERLED light bulbs down the Sumida River in central Tokyo, which made the river shimmer in an amazing shade of blue! The reason was that Panasonic started the Tokyo Hotaru (= firefly) festival by sending these 100K LEDs down the river, in order to look like fireflies as well as to remember the Japanese tradition of floating candles on the water. Panasonic assured that all the candles run on solar power gathered during the daylight and all/most of the LEDs are being catched by a fishernet afterwards. Avoid eating blue glowing fish in Tokyo these days 😉
