Yes, I remember my grandpa proudly showing off his LED digital watch in the '70s, with a magnifying lens over each digit in the display. The enduring image I remember is him holding it up to his face and squinting to see it in sunlight.
LEDs have really come a long way in the last few years. I've upgraded my vehicle lights and love the color. Now household LED lighting is sliding down the price/lumen curve and will supplant CFLs before long.
Happy Birthday, LED!
