Brisbane City Council's Open Innovation Process uses the collective wisdom of individuals, businesses (small and large), entrepreneurs, students, academics and council representatives to solve problems. This year participants were asked how they would power the iconic King George Square Christmas tree in Brisbane using sustainable, innovative technology for both the star and the decorations. Previously only the star was powered with solar.
The solution by Lit-Pix uses 8000 programmed LED lights powered using solar panels on the new Santa Hut, allowing programmed lighting displays for all to enjoy. www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/about-council/governance-strategy/business-brisbane/business-events-awards/brisbane-innovate/open-innovation-process
