Back in the 1960’s, a Glow Sticks original purpose was to benefit the Sailing Branch of the Military for Experimental Bombs, and creating targets for airstrikes. As well as being a much safer alternative to the traditional flare. The 60’s was clearly a bright decade, as it was also around the time the LED or Light Emitting Diode was discovered by James R Biard and Gary Pittman. Because of the expense of the LED, they were only used in highly professional laboratory equipment, but since the 70’s, the price has dropped dramatically, and LED’s have slowly found their way into a heap of different things; flash lights, office lamps, giant advertising signs, Christmas Lights etc.
Nowadays Glow Sticks are typically used for Music Concerts, Festivals, Discos, Parties, Night Time Fundraising Events, 90’s Raves the list could go on and on. And it’s not all about the bog standard Glow Stick anymore either, oh no! There’s tons of variations on the standard Glow Stick, Glow Stick Caps, Glow Stick Glasses, Glow Stick Tiaras, Glow Stick Ear Rings.. And as for LED’s, they’ve found their way into all sorts of kids toys and novelties.
