    My daughter got wings over the holidays. She was having fun with her fairy costume and I added a blinking LED for the trail. What fairy does not have pixie dust? or a scooter for that matter? A light-emitting diode (LED) is a two-lead semiconductor light source.When a current is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence.

    Wow, Juan! I agree with Michele W. that this frame is "pure magic"! It made me smile the second I saw it. The lights trailing behind her create such a surreal moment. She'll be so happy as an adult when she can look at all these old pictures her dad made while she was growing up!
