It Might Look Like A Normal Chandelier. But When You Stand Underneath It And Look Up... Wow.

Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

This chandelier is currently hanging in the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington DC. The CSIS chandelier may look stunning as you walk in, but the best part of the light display isn't apparent until you stand directly underneath it. Then, your jaw will drop.

Each LED light bulb makes the chandelier a brilliant piece, but it gets even better when you get closer.

When you stand underneath it...

A map of the world forms, made out of 425 hanging pendants.

The chandelier is actually a live display, illustrating various global data reports.

The lights will change due to GDP growth rate, renewable water resources, and energy consumption for the countries of the world.

All of the data is paired with a lighting animation code and the sytem automatically updates with information online.

Every animation that is displayed through the LED chandelier is programmed to look like what it is reporting. For example, the renewable water resources report looks like rain drops, the energy consumption report pulsates and the GDP data looks like it is growing. I thought it was cool when my car told me how cold it was outside. Source: electronicproducts.com Click below to share this awesome display with others.
