Neon’s Peculiar Pizazz

I was out running errands this afternoon and caught Studio 360′s Design for the Real World segment on Public Radio International.

This week, the subject was NEON (yay!).

It was a really great piece  …. and I love that we live in an era when I can share it almost instantly! Click the player below to listen to the story; or visit Studio 360′s weekly episode page to download an mp3 of the broadcast.

Design for the Real World: Neon

Neon signage has been around for exactly a century, but today the glowing lights face competition from cheaper LED technology. Physics professor Eric Schiff and Jeff Friedman, of New York’s Let There Be Neon studio, explain what’s behind neon’s everlasting glow.
- Produced by Jordan Sayle.
