Each year Applidyne employs the services of local artist Harry Slaghekke to design Applidyne’s annual Christmas Card. These cards usually depict the successes or events of the previous year and are sent to our clients and suppliers to thank them for their support or service throughout the year.

With 2013 celebrating the twentieth year of business for Applidyne this year’s card was influenced by the changes in technology over the past twenty years.

We have taken the launch of the latest card as an opportunity to look back at Applidyne cards of Christmas past….

What happens when Applidyne engineers decide to tinker with the traditional Christmas tree lights?…You end up with a LEDmas Tree.

 

The engineers at Applidyne have developed this prototype LEDmas tree on a whim and have had some great fun developing the concept and animations.

With stunning animations, the LEDmas tree can morph from a traditional Christmas tree to a psychedelic light display.

A video of the LEDmas tree can be seen on Youtube while the original prototype is on display at ‘Two Pears’ at 145 Magill Road, Stepney until the new year.

Additional photos of the construction of the tree can be seen on our Facebook page.
