TLC BeatsWe received a note from our client Garry Jones the creator of “Light Beats” and we thought you might like to read what he had to say.

“I am Garry Jones from Callahan, Florida. I am a graphic designer. I been playing with lights since high school. I brought my first color organ kit in 1971 and connected the outputs to three pot lights and the controller to a juke box so the customer got a light show when they played music. The concept kept the juke box playing and the customers loved it.

I first saw Funhouse Creations on YouTube and said “I got to get those lights for my Light Beats invention”. Light Beats are a spherical shaped three dimensional display of colored arrays of light that pulsate to music and/or programmed sequences, can be paired with Bluetooth devices like smartphones, Ipads or laptop computers, with optional Bluetooth speakers, for a complete light and sound experience. I use the opaque pvc bullet lights (Special Order TCL Pixels) and they have taken my invention to a higher level. They work perfectly on my “Light Beats” invention. I am working on a new version of my invention using the water clear pvc bullet lights (Special Order TCL Pixels) that will project color patterns on the walls, floor and ceiling at the same time. I will be showing my invention at “One Spark” in Jacksonville, Florida at Jacksonville Landing April 7 -12, 2015.
Special thanks to Funhouse Creations and especially for your great service.
Garry Jones”

Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 9.17.20 AMIt is such a delight to be able to share what was a top secret project. Ariana Grande and Little Big Town were the hit of the Country Music Awards ceremony with their fabulous outfits we made for them using our double density RGB LED light roll, by none other than Cool Neon’s own, Benny James! We are pretty excited!

And here is a video!

The costumes got a lot of press. We especially like the Billboard mention, click HERE to see it, and they even mention Katy Perry’s costume, which was also made right here in our workroom.  E! Online also gave the costumes a shout out and also referenced Katy’s costume, click HERE to read it.

It has been an exciting year and we love sharing it with you.
