Light graffiti is made much more accessible and mainstream thanks to this LED Tree Swing. At first glance, it might look like a typical rope swing found in quaint backyards, but upon close inspection it becomes clear that the perimeter of the seat is not normal. It has been wrapped with Electroluminiscent Tape with RGB LEDs on the bottom so as to create a striking glow at night.

Like something out of 'TRON: Legacy,' the LED Tree Swing emits a bright blue light that streaks mesmerizingly when captured on camera using a slow shutter speed. Of course, the color can be changed thanks to a remote control. Designed by Germán González Garrido, the LED Tree Swing adds a fun hi-tech aspect to an age-old childhood pastime.
