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.
