Colored LED lights

Dreamgirls at the Paramount Theatre sparkle with LED Light Panels.


A Seattle based company, Light Sciences Oncology, is trying to cure cancer using LED lights combined with a chemical drug. The company is testing its revolutionary treatment on  208 patients with liver cancer and another 450 people with colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver.  The test data should be ready to share this summer and everyone is hoping for good results.

The company is developing a drug/device combination therapy against solid tumors that aren’t treated well with conventional drugs that circulate through the body. The Light Sciences therapy is designed to work by inserting a disposable catheter into a solid tumor, mounted with a light-emitting diode on the tip, and turning on the light. The patient is then injected with an inactive chemical drug called talaporfin sodium (Aptocine) that becomes activated to kill tumors within a limited wavelength around the light. It’s supposed to fight cancer without damaging the healthy tissue nearby.

Phototherapy is also using LED lights to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.  LED therapy is a non-invasive procedure commonly used by dermatologists, high end beauty salons and plastic surgeons that activates skin cells with pulses of low-level, non-thermal light energy. Cells exposed to red light from LEDs grow 150 to 200 percent faster than cells not stimulated by such light.  Skin Physics Photon LED Photo Rejuvenation System is able to boost cellular energy using a specific wavelength of red light on the skin.

This Color-Changing, Remote Controlled LED Light is . See video demonstrating the light in all its colored glory. What’s important to understand about these pictures below is that they are all of the same kind of light in a row.  We wanted to lined them up and and put the lights in different sequence to show you many of the different colors that this ONE LED LIGHT can throw off.  The light (which sells for $34.95 on Eaglelight) comes with a remote control and you can have the light rotate through all the colors, or stay in one color, or go through various color-changing patterns.


One of the most fun lights you can find is LEDInsider’s multi-color LED strip lights available at

The lights go through 15 different color choices. This installation shows strip lights set inside the cove, aimed up at the ceiling.  These pictures show a few of the beautiful colors that you get – all from a single LED light strip!

Here’s a video that shows how the multi-color strip lights work.

The LED strip lights are water resistant and have a self-adhesive backing that allows them to be attached easily to any surface.  They come in lengths of 18 inches, that can be connected together.

Light has the power to do much more than just illuminate our environment.  Light can heal and affect moods and reverse aging of our skin.  The multi-colored LED lights that Eaglelight sells may not only brighten your moods, they also may make you healthier.

Light therapy is an approved way to cure “SAD”, Seasonal Affective Disorder,  also known as winter depression. “Blue-light” therapy is a cure for jaundice in very young babies and violet lights kill the bacteria that causes acne. Light therapy is also reported to help with Parkinson’s tremors, improve mental disorders, regulate sleep, and promote the healing of wounds. These are just a few of the benefits you can get from using LED lights.

Colored light therapy has been around for a long time. The ancient Egyptians installed panes of colored glass in the ceilings to color the light that entered for healing effects. In traditional Chinese medicine, each organ is associated with a color and the practice of qijong uses color for healing. Indian Ayurvedic medicine uses all colors of the spectrum to restore harmony and health.

I will research and write more about health and LED lights and share with you what I learn.

Trees and objects in Odori Park in Sapporo’s main downtown district are lit up from November 28th, 2008 to January 4th, 2009 as part of the Sapporo White Illumination Festival that marks the coming of the snow season in the capital city of Japan’s northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido.

The pictures below are of 4.5 million LEDs at the Winter Light Show that runs until March 8, 2009 in the Nabana no Sato theme park in Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, in Japan. This year’s theme is flowers, illuminated in 64 billion colors that are reported to change color so quickly that they actually resemble a river more than a field of blooming plants.

Vivid color-changing LED technology enables a production of 64 billion colors. The rapidly changing colors look like a river flowing in front of your eyes.


Illuminated clothes with LEDs

At, we’re not offering LED clothes…yet!  But maybe that will be a future development. What do you think!?!

Each one of Lumigram’s Lumitop fiber optic tops is powered by a compact battery pack connected to a bright LED light source.
