- LEDs: The New Pinball Wizard - LIGHT MATTERS 07.25.2016
Traditional pinball machines are rolling into the modern age, thanks to advances in LEDs and other high-tech lighting systems. On this month’s show, we look at how innovators in New Jersey are revitalizing these machines from the inside out. We also explore a new light source technology that could essentially establish a secure global quantum network in space, as well as new touch-based and breath-based sensor systems for vehicles that aim to prevent drunk driving. And Managing Editor Michael Wheeler offers a sneak peek at the August issue of Photonics Spectra, and Photonics Media’s new Beacons recognition program.
