FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
of Fireflies Swarm the Landmark Bellagio Hotel
in Las Vegas.
Planning on visiting Las Vegas in the
next few months? Be sure to stop by the Bellagio
Hotel in the evening to witness hundreds of Fireflies
come to life in the Conservatory, just off the
Bellagio Hotel lobby.
(PRWEB)June 17, 2005 -- Planning on visiting Las
Vegas in the next few months? Be sure to stop by
the Bellagio Hotel in the evening to witness hundreds
of fireflies come to life in the Conservatory,
just off the Bellagio Hotel lobby.
"Are these fireflies real?" asked one
guest while gazing with amazement at the flashing,
flickering, and fading little fireflies.
Actually, they're Firefly Magic Firefly Lights
(www.FireflyMagic.com) selected by Mr. Troy Eckerman,
head of Chroma Designs, Inc. to enhance a forty-foot
long, sixteen-foot high arched arbor covered with
curly willow foliage, and the centerpiece of the
most recent Bellagio Conservatory display.
"Firefly Magic electronic 'fireflies', with
their unique patent pending microprocessor technology,
were selected because they recreate the most realistic
'look and feel' of Mother Nature's real fireflies
than any other product in the world."
At night, with the 'fireflies' flashing, the scene
is reminiscent of a back woods bayou deep in the
South. Sigma Two Industries created twenty-one
custom High-Flash-Rate Firefly Magic Firefly Lights
units which were installed along the top of the
arched arbor. Each of the 300 individual 'firefly'
wires, along with an independently controlled 'firefly'
at the end of each one, stream down and through
the arbor foliage.
Visitors to the display, which will remain in
place through September, were mesmerized by the
hundreds of tiny 'fireflies' flashing, flickering,
and fading overhead. But Firefly Magic electronic
Firefly Lights are not new to being showcased in
public displays. They're also being used in theme
parks, restaurants, on-stage, in movies, and at
museums like the Natural Science Center of Greensboro
in their popular 'Bug Discovery' exhibit.
Just how realistic are Firefly Magic Firefly Lights?
Ask Dr. Sara Lewis, Associate Professor of Biology
at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts,
a center for firefly research.
Dr. Lewis and her researchers are using Firefly
Magic Firefly Lights in the field to 'lure-in'
real fireflies for study. By using the unique patent
pending microprocessor technology in Firefly Magic
Firefly Lights, the specialized flash pattern of
any of 2000 varieties of fireflies can be accurately
programmed into these amazing electronic 'fireflies'.
However, the great majority of the Firefly Magic
Firefly Lights customers are homeowners who want
to bring 'fireflies' into their own backyards.
Stephen Taylor, President of Sigma Two Industries,
read an e-mail from Marge Anderson, a customer
in Minnesota, who wrote, "I border a bog area
so I mounted the solar "lamp" on a tall
pole, so it would receive sunlight as the cattails
grow. I then strung the lights ('fireflies') and
clipped them to the growing cattails so they could
keep moving up and not be blocked by new growth.
Well, last night, I had a very pleasant surprise.
As I sat on the deck, watching the lights in the
bog, I was amazed by the numbers. As it turned
out, the Firefly lights had attracted many real
fireflies. It was the most amazing sight. We have
always had fireflies, but never in these numbers.
Each night I plant myself on the deck to watch
the dance that goes on. I am so amazed that the
lights have attracted so many real fireflies. Just
wanted to pass this on. Thanks for making such
an innovative and quality product."
Taylor continued with a letter from Bob Sordahl
of Kenmore, Washington who wrote, "I bought
a set of (Firefly Magic) firefly lights and installed
them for last night's patio party. They were a
total hit. They fooled several guests who grew
up in the mid-west, and honestly thought I had
imported real fireflies into my garden. I only
wish I had ordered 4 or 5 more sets because I could
have sold them all in a heartbeat. Thanks for selling
such a unique and fun product."
