Neon signs, made from LEDs

Img413 493
LEDs to replace NEON? I want to tinker with these no matter what – “The ideal lighting solution for any architectural, decorative or signage application. LED-FLEX incorporates light emitting diode (LED) technology in a flexible, durable tube that uses a proprietary maximization technique to achieve the appearance and brightness of traditional neon. Completely sealed and impervious to shock and vibration. LED-FLEX can be used indoors or out, in wet and extreme conditions. Best yet, LED-FLEX is up to 70% more efficient than neon, provides long years of continuous use, yet is cool enough for contact with people and delicate materials.” [via] – Link.

  1. I went to the web site….how much do these cost? Can just an every day person buy some? They’re links are confusing as heck.

  3. take it from an expert these things are crap and nothing like neon in glass as for the claim 70% doughtful the cost of neon is five times less to make and install plus the choice of colours is more than 50 to 6 so don’t lie to the public a bit of fairness in the argument would be helpful. regards
