Giant solar-powered LED flowers in Jerusalem

In Jerusalem, an art collective called O*GE has a neat installation that consists of giant solar-powered low-wattage LED flowers. It's a joint effort with Israel's electric company to promote alternative energy. The flowers, which include lotuses and tulips, are made of steel wires and laser-cut glass. Pretty!

  1. I think that the beautiful, but not entirely realistic. Perhaps the largest “garden”, it is to spend money to see, but I do not think that the past so that the business world. Significance of housing, residential, hospitals, etc.

  2. I understand that the solar cells used to power these flowers use state-of-the-art “geranium diode” technology!
