LED strip lights on construction sites?

At lunch today I walked by a nearby construction site for a new building and noticed something interesting:  The contractors were using flexible LED strip lights for their temporary work lighting.  They had it strung up and threaded through the scaffolding.

How interesting it is to see a leap in technology from blinding high-power, fragile metal halide “cage lights” to flexible, durable cords of light that distribute the illumination far more evenly.  I bet they have these strip lights on cord reels just like any other electric extension cord or pneumatic hose.

Sorry, no pictures – I didn’t want to be rude to the workers.
