New Dating Service for Lonely Fireflies & Lightning Bugs

(PRWEB) May 07, 2013 - This spring, Fireflies, also known as Lightning Bugs, will begin flashing their little tail lanterns at each other in an attempt to find a mate. But with environmental changes affecting so many of the habitates where fireflies gather, finding a date with a mate is getting much more difficult. But this year Firefly Magic is coming to the rescue.

Designed and patented to accurately reproduce the flashing of Mother Nature’s fireflies or lightning bugs, Firefly Magic Firefly Lights can be used to lure real fireflies into closer proximity of each other, making it easier for them to find a mate in backyards and gardens.

So accurate are Firefly Magic Firefly Lights, they’ve been used to lure fireflies for study by a noted university researcher who said “Firefly Magic firefly lights are so real they even fool other fireflies”. In addition, Firefly Magic ‘Fireflies’ are used in zoos, nature centers, museums, and theme parks to mimic the flashing, flickering and fading of real fireflies.

With firefly and lightning bug populations diminishing in many rural areas due to light pollution and other environmental causes, attracting the few that remain to a central location, such as a backyard, gives the fireflies a greater chance of meeting each other for a ‘mate date’.

Of course many parts of the United States don’t have fireflies or lightning bugs, so for everyone in those locations, Firefly Magic ‘Fireflies’ are a wonderful addition that brings the fun, excitement, look, and feel of real fireflies to any home’s backyard or garden.

Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are available in Eco-friendly solar powered models with either 7 or 14 ‘Fireflies’ that can easily be setup in any backyard or garden.

With the arrival of spring, fireflies and lightning bugs are just beginning to appear from the eastern seaboard through the Midwest, from New England to Florida and Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are ready to act as matchmaker for all those lonely little fireflies and lightning bugs that want to get together.

Both general and purchasing information about Firefly Magic Firefly Lights can be found on their Website at www.FireflyMagic.com.

Firefly Magic designs and manufactures the World’s most accurate recreation of Mother Nature’s fireflies or lighting bugs using their patented microprocessor technology. Featured on HGTV, DIY, and National Geographic Channel, Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are not only used in home backyards and gardens, they’re frequently used on stage or in movies and TV to replicate flashing fireflies.

Fireflies Poised for Takeoff at Retail Stores

(Apple Valley, California) – Thanks to a new, innovative and patented product, the excitement and fun of flashing and flickering fireflies or lightning bugs can be enjoyed virtually anywhere, anytime, by anybody as Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are now available to retailers across the United States and Canada.

It’s a product that will recapture enjoyable childhood memories for many grownups, not to mention creating great new memories for both kids and adults alike. Firefly Magic Firefly Lights use a new and novel technology that makes their ‘Fireflies’ randomly flash on, flicker, and then fade off just like Mother Nature's real fireflies.

These unique ‘Fireflies’ or ‘Lightning Bugs’ operate on renewable solar energy, but can also be used in no-sun locations by installing two regular AA batteries. They’re designed to be easily placed in bushes, trees, and backyard landscape with each little ‘Firefly’ on its own individual wire and can cover an area from 13 to 24 feet wide.

The idea to accurately recreate the unique flashing of fireflies came to inventor Stephen Taylor while sitting by a lake in north Texas. As he watched the fireflies emerge, flashing their evening welcome, he decided to create a product that would accurately mimic the look and feel of real fireflies for those children who have never seen them. “Think about the millions of kids, and even adults, who live in the western United States and have never seen a real firefly or lightning bug,” says Taylor. “That means they’re missing out on one of nature’s greatest wonders.”

Retailers will now have the opportunity to offer their customers a truly new product that will add something very special to yards and gardens. The entertainment lighting product can bring fun and enjoyment to any occasion while entertaining family, friends, and guests. Or, the product can just be enjoyed as real fireflies are, by sitting quietly and watching their amazing flashing, flickering and fading.

Firefly Magic Firefly Lights sell well at garden and landscape centers, florists, gift stores, museum, discovery, and zoo shops, water garden pond stores, wedding shops, RV Centers, novelty, party, and holiday theme stores, pool and spa centers, and hardware stores.

Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are the exact color and size of the Photinus firefly, or lightning bug, the most predominant species in the US. So accurate, they’re used in zoos, nature centers, museums, and theme parks to recreate the look of real fireflies, and have also been used in university field research to fool the real fireflies.

Firefly Magic Firefly Lights have a variety of models and sizes with MSRPs starting at $67.95

Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights featured on DIY Network's new show, Yard Crashers.

Yard Carshers DIY Netwrok FirefliesYou never know what you're gonna bring home from the home improvement store — maybe some new patio chairs or a bag of cement — or it could be professional landscaper Ahmed Hassan. It's like winning the landscape lottery: Ahmed waits at stores looking for the perfect weekend warriors who could use his help. People go in thinking they're just buying a bag of mulch, but instead come home with Ahmed and his team, who completely transform their landscape. It's ambush landscaping at its best!

In the February, 2009 First Episode of Season Two, Ahmed introduces an unsuspecting homeowner to the amazing Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights Solar Powered 'Fireflies' for her backyard makeover. The electronic 'Fireflies' flash, flicker, and fade, displaying the World's most accurate recreation of Mother Nature's real fireflies.

Landscape designer Ahmed Hassan's ambition to be involved in landscaping began at a very young age. Raised on a California alfalfa farm, Ahmed learned early on how to master a mower and turn turf into art. Over the past 17 years, his interest in anything outdoors has led him to become one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most sought-after young landscape designers. He was supervisor of a landscaping and gardening team for Redwood City, Calif., and owns his own landscape design, installation and maintenance company. He conducts workshops for the general public on topics ranging from park maintenance to landscape design. Ahmed has a solid educational background, mastering courses in ornamental horticulture, irrigation, soil science and pruning and landscaping with native plants. Ahmed has been a popular expert contributor on HGTV's Landscape Smart. Catch Ahmed on Blog Cabin, The Dirt on ... and Yard Crashers.

Because fireflies don't inhabit the Western United States, many homeowners who've relocated from the East and Midwest truly miss watching the fireflies come out at sunset. To solve that problem, Sigma Two Industries developed and patented the technology used in Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights.

Used in zoos, nature museums, theme parks, restaurants, hotels, and many other commercial venues to recreate the look of real fireflies, Firefly Magic ® Firefly Lights are also available for home gardens and backyards.

Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights have been featured on a number of television shows and networks, including HGTV, Animal Planet, National Geographic Channel, Fine Living, and DIY Network.

TIM CARTER JOINS FIREFLY MAGIC TEAM

Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights welcomes Tim Carter, inventor and patent holder of Disney like artificial fireflies.

Tim Carter, noted in the special effects arena for his unique and patented design of simulated moving fireflies, has joined the Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights team. Tim developed his unique moving firefly concept in the 1980's after having been familiar with the original fireflies at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction since it opened in 1966.

Upon the completion of his development efforts, Tim was invited to present his concept directly to the Walt Disney Imagineering team in Glendale, California. Subsequently he applied for, and received a U.S. patent for the design.

Recently, Tim had the opportunity to evaluate the newest and superbly accurate recreation of Mother Nature’s real fireflies, Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights.

Invented by Stephen Taylor, Firefly Magic® ‘Fireflies’ incorporate high technology micro processing and light emitting diodes to exactly mimic the flashing, flickering, and fading of real fireflies. So unique are these new ‘Fireflies’ that Taylor holds two patents on them, one for the method in which they recreate the look of real fireflies, and another for the uniquely designed ‘Firefly LED Light’.

Following Tim Carter’s evaluation of the new electronic ‘Fireflies’, he heartily agreed to enter into a multi-year endorsement agreement with Sigma Two Group LLC, manufacturer and distributor of the Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights product line.

Enthused with what he saw, Tim explained, “These new Firefly Magic® electronic ‘Fireflies’ amazingly capture the true essence of what we see with real living fireflies in nature. It's the adventure of the firefly hunt recreated in a very wonderful and fun way. I'm impressed. I’m also impressed with the simplicity and quality of design that allows virtually anyone to bring the magic of ‘fireflies’ into their own backyard or garden.”

Although Tim will primarily be involved with the marketing of the Firefly Magic® ‘Fireflies’, plans are also in development that may include collaborative efforts between Tim and Sigma Two Group LLC engineers to develop new technologies in the field of artificial fireflies.

Asked what this alliance may mean, Stephen Taylor responded, “This brings together the two preeminent inventors in the field of artificial firefly replication. We’re extremely gratified that Tim so strongly believes in our Firefly Magic® ‘Firefly’ product and that he wants to share their unique features and benefits with the public.”

CAPTURING MORE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Firefly Magic®, designer and manufacturer of the World's most accurate recreation of Mother Nature’s amazing flashing, flickering and fading Fireflies has released its retail version of the amazing electronic fireflies. The new units have 7 or 14 'Fireflies' and are a 2-in-1 product operating from either solar energy or from standrad AA batteries for more flexibility.

Sigma Two Industries, Apple Valley, California has introduced its new, patented, retail product, Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights. This will be the first opportunity for resellers such as lawn, garden and landscape centers, gift stores, museum, discovery, and zoo shops, water garden pond stores, wedding shops, RV Centers, novelty, party, and holiday theme stores, pool and spa centers, and hardware stores to sell the new flashing, flickering and fading fireflies to homeowners for their backyards and gardens.

The new retail product is environmentally friendly (certified NO LEAD) and easy to install, using solar power to keep the little electronic fireflies flashing and glowing for nights on end. So accurate are these Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights, that they're used by nature museums, zoos, and theme parks for recreating the real look and feel of fireflies for tens-of-thousands of visitors. They've also been recognized in a scientific journal as a key element of firefly field research, being used to lure specific species of live fireflies.

The inventor of the technology, Stephen Taylor, first developed prototype units, followed with sales to commercial organizations, then limited Internet sales. Taylor shared, "We frequently receive calls from retailers and distributors asking if they can carry our product. Unfortunately, we've had limited manufacturing capacity in Southern California, as well as high production costs, so we just couldn't fulfill those retailers’ requests."

However, after Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights were featured on HGTV, DIY Network, Animal Planet, the National Geographic Channel and others, the decision was made to reposition manufacturing to align more closely with the cost demands of traditional retail distribution channels.

The new solar and battery powered retail version of Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights will feature 14 electronic fireflies, each matching the size and greenish-yellow color of one of the most common varieties of firefly in the United States. Each 'firefly' is on its own individual wire, and when extended, the unit can cover an area approximately 24 feet wide.

Asked what the biggest challenge laying ahead for this new product is, Taylor replied, "Getting people aware that such an innovate product even exists. Because there's never been anything like this on the store shelves before, customers won't be looking for it. For those who have previously purchased our product on the Internet, we know it generates great word-of-mouth. But spreading the word in the retail environment will definitely be a challenge . . . but one we’re looking forward to because everyone truly does love 'Fireflies', both Mother Nature's and ours."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights have been recognized for their contribution to firefly research in The American Naturalist, a leading scientific journal published for the American Society of Naturalist by the University of Chicago Press,.

While fireflies are fun to watch as they flash, flicker, and fade on a warm summer's evening, they are also the focus of scientific research. Fireflies also know as lightning bugs, are one of a small number of species that create their own bioluminescence. Learning more about how and why these tiny creatures flash signals to each other is the subject of ongoing scientific research, and Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights are there to help.

The scientific paper title, "Energy and Predation Costs of Firefly Courtship Signals" published in Volume 170, Number 5 of The American Naturalist, was authored by William A. Woods Jr., Holly Hendrickson, Jennifer Mason, and Sara M. Lewis, Professor, Department of Biology, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts.

The subject of this research study was animal courtship signals, specifically a comprehensive assessment of signal (flashing) cost for Photinus fireflies (Coleoptera: Lampyridae), using controlled experiments to measure both the energy and predation costs associated with their bioluminescent courtship signals.

To successfully conduct the research, Dr. Lewis required reliable artificial fireflies that would exactly mimic the flash patterns of the Photinus Greeni firefly. Dr. Lewis contacted Stephen Taylor, inventor of Firefly Magic® Firefly lights, and patent holder on the methodology of using microprocessors to recreate accurate firefly flash patterns. Her objective was to obtain a device that would correctly reproduce the unusual flash pattern of the Photinus Greeni.

Taylor designed and built the units described in the study as follows: "We used battery-powered microprocessors to drive 565nm LEDs (Lampyridae Lures, Firefly Magic, Apple Valley, CA) that were programmed to accurately simulate the typical mating signals produced by P. greeni males (paired 100-ms pulses separated by a 1,200-ms interpulse interval).

At the end of the Study, the following acknowledgement was listed: "We thank S. Taylor at Firefly Magic (http://www.fireflymagic.com) for providing us with Lampyridae Lures . . ."

In recognition of the importance of Firefly research, Stephen Taylor and Firefly Magic® donated both the development time and research firefly lures to Tufts University.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The movie production of "Fireflies in the Garden" starring Julia Roberts,Julia Roberts - Fireflies in the Garden Carrie-Anne Moss, Willem Dafoe, Hayden Panettiere, and Shannon Lucio selects Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights as their firefly special effects supplier.

Filmed primarily in Austin, Texas, the need to produce cost effective firefly effects were an important part of the shooting. Rather than Fireflies in the Gardenemploy costly computer graphics to create the firefly special effects, the Firefly Magic Firefly Lights were used against a 'blue screen' and subsequently superimposed onto the background.

Stephen Taylor, Lighting Effects Designer for the Sigma Two Group LLC, said, "While CG (computer graphics) creates a very nice effect, it is generally more expensive to implement. When a production is limited in the amount they can spend for special effects, more creative solutions are often considered. In this case, we were pleased that we could support the production by custom designing units that produced higher output firefly flashing which allowed for adjustment during the editing process."

Hundreds of Fireflies Swarm the Landmark Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

Planning on visiting Las Vegas in the next few months? Be sure to stop by the Bellagio Hotel in the evening to witness hundreds of Fireflies come to life in the Conservatory, just off the Bellagio Hotel lobby.

(PRWEB)June 17, 2005 -- Planning on visiting Las Vegas in the next few months? Be sure to stop by the Bellagio Hotel in the evening to witness hundreds of fireflies come to life in the Conservatory, just off the Bellagio Hotel lobby.

"Are these fireflies real?" asked one guest while gazing with amazement at the flashing, flickering, and fading little fireflies.

Actually, they're Firefly Magic Firefly Lights (www.FireflyMagic.com) selected by Mr. Troy Eckerman, head of Chroma Designs, Inc. to enhance a forty-foot long, sixteen-foot high arched arbor covered with curly willow foliage, and the centerpiece of the most recent Bellagio Conservatory display.

"Firefly Magic electronic 'fireflies', with their unique patent pending microprocessor technology, were selected because they recreate the most realistic 'look and feel' of Mother Nature's real fireflies than any other product in the world."

At night, with the 'fireflies' flashing, the scene is reminiscent of a back woods bayou deep in the South. Sigma Two Industries created twenty-one custom High-Flash-Rate Firefly Magic Firefly Lights units which were installed along the top of the arched arbor. Each of the 300 individual 'firefly' wires, along with an independently controlled 'firefly' at the end of each one, stream down and through the arbor foliage.

Visitors to the display, which will remain in place through September, were mesmerized by the hundreds of tiny 'fireflies' flashing, flickering, and fading overhead. But Firefly Magic electronic Firefly Lights are not new to being showcased in public displays. They're also being used in theme parks, restaurants, on-stage, in movies, and at museums like the Natural Science Center of Greensboro in their popular 'Bug Discovery' exhibit.

Just how realistic are Firefly Magic Firefly Lights? Ask Dr. Sara Lewis, Associate Professor of Biology at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, a center for firefly research.

Dr. Lewis and her researchers are using Firefly Magic Firefly Lights in the field to 'lure-in' real fireflies for study. By using the unique patent pending microprocessor technology in Firefly Magic Firefly Lights, the specialized flash pattern of any of 2000 varieties of fireflies can be accurately programmed into these amazing electronic 'fireflies'.

However, the great majority of the Firefly Magic Firefly Lights customers are homeowners who want to bring 'fireflies' into their own backyards.

Stephen Taylor, President of Sigma Two Industries, read an e-mail from Marge Anderson, a customer in Minnesota, who wrote, "I border a bog area so I mounted the solar "lamp" on a tall pole, so it would receive sunlight as the cattails grow. I then strung the lights ('fireflies') and clipped them to the growing cattails so they could keep moving up and not be blocked by new growth. Well, last night, I had a very pleasant surprise. As I sat on the deck, watching the lights in the bog, I was amazed by the numbers. As it turned out, the Firefly lights had attracted many real fireflies. It was the most amazing sight. We have always had fireflies, but never in these numbers. Each night I plant myself on the deck to watch the dance that goes on. I am so amazed that the lights have attracted so many real fireflies. Just wanted to pass this on. Thanks for making such an innovative and quality product."

Taylor continued with a letter from Bob Sordahl of Kenmore, Washington who wrote, "I bought a set of (Firefly Magic) firefly lights and installed them for last night's patio party. They were a total hit. They fooled several guests who grew up in the mid-west, and honestly thought I had imported real fireflies into my garden. I only wish I had ordered 4 or 5 more sets because I could have sold them all in a heartbeat. Thanks for selling such a unique and fun product."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Firefly Magic Firefly Lights Inventor Stephen Taylor Named "Lord of the Fireflies" in Pool and Spa News Magazine December 10, 2004 Issue. In the December 10, 2004 issue of Pool and Spa News magazine, writer Joshua Keim wrote an article titled, "Lord of the Fireflies" describing how the Firefly Magic firefly lights were invented by Stephen Taylor, President of Sigma Two Industries.

(PRWEB) December 12, 2004 -- Outlining how Taylor first conceived of creating realistic firefly lights that would exactly replicate Mother Nature's fireflies in the way they flash, flicker, and fade, Keim went on to detail Taylor's career crisis that became the catalyst for their invention. After Taylor was laid off from his position as director of international business development at Henkel Group, the economy faltered, and new job prospects dried up. It was at this point Taylor began earnestly working on his firefly light idea, including filing patents on Firefly Magic firefly lights.

Smiling as he read the article, Taylor commented, "Joshua did a great job of recounting the story of how Fire Magic Firefly Lights went from my initial inspiration on a warm summer evening in the mid-90's to the current success they are having across the country." Taylor added, "Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are truly a unique and creative product that people fall in love with immediately. After all, who doesn't love to sit and watch fireflies flicker, flash, fade and glow as sun sets on a warm evening?"
