LED Maps Light Up Wherever You’ve Been, or Where You’re Going

by


Do you travel a lot? While you could certainly use any of a number of digital tools to keep track of all the locations you’ve visited, it might be sort of cool to have a more physical manifestation of your journeys than just some Google Maps page that only exists in the digital ether of The Cloud. These LED wall maps might just do the trick.

Each one of these map is capable of powering LED markers placed at any location on the map. To map out where you’ve been (or where you’re going), you simply poke an LED into the location on the map and it lights up.

In addition to the U.S. map, there’s a world map edition too, but it’s not quite as detailed, so it might be harder to pinpoint the exact cities you’ve been to.

However, since the whole thing is backed by a sheet of conductive foam, you can still place the LEDs anywhere you want on the map.

Each kit comes not only with the map, but with 100 LEDs in a variety of colors that you can use to mark your locations. There are also two blinking markers in the kit which let you mark home base, or start and end points on a long journey.

I think these would look great hanging up in a home office or study, as well as in a classroom for teaching geography. I could also see using these to divvy up sales territories by using colored LEDs to represent different sales reps.

Each map measures 35.5″(W) x 24.5″(H) x .75″(D), and includes a power adapter with a 9-foot cord. They’re available in either a black powder-coat aluminum frame for $199.99 (USD) or a burled wood frame for $249.99 over at LED Maps.

    Gentlemen, do you have a larger version of this LED World Map. Or could you custom make one? Or might you know of someone who does have a larger version. I want to put a larger version in a corridor at the church, but the 35.5 x 24 is just too small. Thanks for any ideas you may have. Larry

    Do you ship to FPO addresses? I live in japan. The best way to ship is USPS Priority

    Can I order additional LEDs? Mine got lost in a move.
