Cool vid: Microsoft Australia launches LightSwitch with light show

It appears that Microsoft Australia launched Visual Studio LightSwitch with a light show featuring some office towers in Sydney.

Visual Studio LightSwitch is a self-service development tool that enables people to build business applications for the desktop and cloud.

The blog TechAU noted that “as part of the Australian launch, Microsoft used a computer controlled lighting grid to display animations on two skyscrapers in Sydney. The effect is pretty impressive and while technically not done using light switches, you get the correlation.” (Hat tip to blogger Long Zheng.)

Here’s the video from MicrosoftAustralia’s YouTube channel:
