Title
(EN) SOURCE OF DECORATIVE ILLUMINATION AND PERSONAL ADORNMENT
(FR) PARURE PERSONNELLE
Abstract
(EN)
A source of decorative illumination (1) comprises red, blue and green light-emitting diodes (5) (LEDs) and a plurality of optical fibres (6) extending away from the LEDs (5). Light from each LED (5) is passed into a proximal end of each optical fibre (6) to emerge from a distal tip (11) thereof. The relative light intensities from the LEDs (5) are controlled by a programmable chip (4) so that a viewer of the distal tip (11) sees a desired single colour resulting from combining the superimposed red, green and blue lights. The perceived colour is varied in a programmed sequence or randomly, and the LEDs (5) may also be flashed on and off. The illumination source (1) may be incorporated into an item to decorate a wearer's hair, such as a hairclip or hair band (16, 19, 52, 55). The optical fibres (6) may be woven into the wearer's hair. Decorative elements (31) and gemstones (30) may be mounted to the distal tips (11) of fibres (6). The illumination source (1) may also be incorporated into clothing (13) or footwear (22), into glassware (24), into brushes (62) and combs, into toys such as balls (28) or rattles (59), into artwork (39), books (41) and cards, and into Christmas trees (42).
(FR)
Cette invention concerne une source d'éclairage décoratif (1) comprenant des diodes électroluminescentes rouge, bleue et verte (5) (DEL) et une pluralité de fibres optiques (6) partant des diodes électroluminescentes (5). La lumière émise par chacune des diodes électroluminescentes (5) passe dans une extrémité proximale de chacune des fibres optiques (6) pour ressortir au niveau d'une pointe distale (11) de celles-ci. Les intensités lumineuses relatives des diodes électroluminescentes (5) sont commandées par une puce programmable (4) de façon qu'un individu regardant la pointe distale (11) puisse voir une seule couleur souhaitée résultant de la combinaison des lumières rouge, verte et bleue superposées. La couleur perçue peut varier selon une séquence programmée ou de façon aléatoire et les diodes électroluminescentes (5) peuvent aussi clignoter. La source d'éclairage (1) peut être incorporée dans un article pour décorer les cheveux de l'utilisateur, tel qu'une pince à cheveux ou un serre-tête (16, 19, 52, 55). Les fibres optiques (6) peuvent être tissées dans les cheveux de l'utilisateur. Des éléments décoratifs (31) et des pierres précieuses (30) peuvent être montés sur les pointes distales (11) de fibres (6). La source d'éclairage (1) peut également être incorporée dans des vêtements (13) ou des chaussures (22), dans des articles de verre (24), dans des brosses (62) et des peignes, dans des jouets tels que des balles (28) ou des hochets (59), dans des illustrations (39), des livres (41) et des cartes, ainsi que dans des arbres de Noël (42).
