June 3, 2012: 100000 LED-lit globes on a Japanese river

Two weeks ago, during the inaugural Tokyo Hotaru festival, 100,000 little balls with LEDs were released in the Sumida River. The impressive installation was made to resemble fireflies (hotaru) and looked like a blur on the river when viewed from a distance. The spheres were 100% powered by solar energy and lighted up upon contact with water. After floating through central Tokyo, the LEDís were caught by a large net.

Click the link and see the other pics - photographers of course realized they could get different effects from different exposures, and it's all quite beautiful. Click on the images to see them in larger format - worth the effort.

The creativity of the photographers is amazing and it is great fun seeing their different takes on the same subject matter.

They are a lot larger than I was expecting from the first couple pictures.

Pretty! I wish we did more stuff like that here.

I want some of these balls! I need these balls! Where can I get balls?

There's a joke here somewhere, about led balls.

"...the LED’s were caught by a large net."

Yeah? And then what? Tossed back into the river? Buried in a landfill? Sold as souvenirs? Where are they now?

Taken to a ball park and set free.

You would not believe at all
If ten million fire balls
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
