Besides reducing energy consumption the new technology will allow the manipulation of light to generate special effects. Will be rainbows, waves and light bulbs produced by cross through computers.

The new devices will allow the Empire State Building is lit with millions of different colors. Currently, only 10 colors are used and required seven workers to change them. The different shades are famous in the building, known for its tradition of using colors to commemorate different causes.
