This week NJTechReviews was atop One Times Square in NYC to check out the 2016 Waterford Crystal Installation on the Times Square Ball.
This year’s crystals are part of the Gift of Wonder and 288 of them were installed. Which completed the full, 1,824 crystal triangles that are on the Times Square Ball. This year’s crystals feature a rosette design that aims to symbolize unity and togetherness.
Each crystal weighs in at the 6.8 ounces and are quite durable since they have to withstand the weather from a tall height in NYC. Behind each of these crystals are Philips LED bulb that reflect off of the Waterford Crystals to make over a million different light patterns.
