Already the countdown has begun to the 2012 olympic games and we have been watching from a lighting point of view, it looks like LED Lights are going to have some really unique and creative uses at the games. We have begun to monitor and check what innovative LED Lighting ideas are out there, here are a few of the uses of LED Lighting at the Olympics we have found:
- Tower bridge : This is to have a lighting upgrade and be lit using LED Lighting rather than traditional floodlights to bring out the gothic architecture, EDF are to supply the green energy to power this upgrade, we think the effect will be outstanding and wouldnt be surprised if our rebel led range or our external led strip lighting was to be used here.

- The tree of light: This project which begun in June 2011 is to conclude with a large scale event in 2012 at the olympics, it involves a sculptured 80 foot high tree created by local communities and LED Lighting powered by rowers at the games.
- Handball Arena: Artist Monica Bonvicini has designed a unique piece of art for the handball arena lit by led lighting and made from glass, the internal led strip lighting is similar to that which we stock.
Much more uses of LED Lighting can be looked up such as powering the internal lighting at stadias, lighting the sport cities and even at a more consumer focused view such as led lighting in counter displays.
