    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s an interesting development that could signal a major advance in stage and concert lighting - audio powered LEDs. Yes, researchers at Hirose-Tanikawa Group at the University of Tokyo have developed an LED that can actually be powered by nothing but audio. An experimental setup of the new system uses an off-the-shelf speaker to deliver an ultrasonic sound wave which is converted into power by a circuit board covered in microphones. The… View this post
