CNN lights up Empire State building with live election results
Smart and extremely useful, the idea of bringing the election results to all the merry folk of New York has just been worked upon more intelligently than even before. CNN have tied up with the Empire State Building to make a sure show of their election result counter, with the help of dazzling LEDs. These will illuminate the upper ends of the iconic tower and provide a live score card to all who look up to the New York skyline. The usual lights were divided in two halves yesterday, red and blue, to indicate the progress of each of the winners. Tonight, as the results unfold, the lights will mark the election results in real time and adjust in length to display Romney and Obama’s progress on the Empire State Building. These lights will continue to expand till the crucial 270 tally is met by any one of the candidates.
It will be quite a light show and can soon become the national scoreboard for every election here forth. The lighting system has been set up by Philips Color Kinetics and will allow the buildings facade and mast to change lighting sequences in real-time. Those not in Manhattan can view the spectacle live, on CNN.
