Time Travelling Budapest Trams

Thanks t03_tramo LED lighting and long exposure photographs the trams in Budapest appear to travel through time.

The trams of Budapest, Hungary were decorated with LED lighting to celebrate the Christmas Holidays. While the 30,000 LED lights really enhance the trams’ look, it is the combined effect of blue and white LEDs and long exposure photography that makes them look truly magical. As the tram moves down the track, the long exposure of the photographs draws out the light, which gives the tram the look of travelling through time.

The Budapest Transport Company started this tradition for the local citizens and it has become a huge attraction during the Christmas season. (Yes I did mention that time of year a bit early, but it is now September.) Visit the Budapest Transport Company’s official website for more information about the holidays.

This is a great example of using LED lighting to create or accent art. Exled’s LED rope light and LED ribbon are great at doing this. They now have their very own Facebook page for you to post photos of all your amazing installations.
