If you’ve played on such slot machines as Sex in the City and Wheel of Fortune, you’ve seen the work of Reno’s high-end contract manufacturer, EE Technologies. This local company produced the toppers and lights for those and many other gaming machines. But, that’s not all…the company also manufactured all of the LED lighting in the Ford Fusion—from door handles to the glove box to the multicolored ambient lighting.
NCET recently hosted their Tech Wednesday, a “get to know a local business” event, at LUX dynamics – a fascinating company that has pretty much reinvented florescent lighting. The owner John McCarty, an engineer and gifted metal sculptor, said he and his former partner started looking at lights and asking “why” … as in “why is it made this way, why did they use this type of screw, this type of everything” … what he discovered is that the lights, like most things, evolved over time – and often decisions to use a certain product were made for the wrong reasons – it was on hand, it was cheaper … not to make the product more efficient, more durable or better overall.
