Because it is held no less that the International Year of light and light-based technologies.
Light is an issue that has accompanied human beings throughout history. Des Greek philosophers to scientists today different theories have been developed with the intention of interpreting nature. All the knowledge that has been generated has made it possible to move forward and reach the current state of science and technology of light.
Light is a form of energy that illuminates things, makes them visible and is spread by particles called photons.”
On 20 December 2013 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light. This resolution is co-sponsored by 35 countries, including Spain. Thus, and as we stated in the resolution, recognizing the importance of light and light-based technologies for the life of the citizens of the world and for the future development of world society on many levels.
The United Nations General Assembly stressed that will increase global awareness and strengthening the teaching of science and technology of light that will enable sustainable development, energy and health of the community and improve the quality of life in developed and developing countries.

Future challenges: Photonics
Fotonica21 in its report on the photonics sector in Spain Science defines this as “the branch of physics that covers the generation, detection, transportation, guidance, manipulation, and use amplification and use of light.” The conclusions underline the fact that this sector will play a key role in the coming decades and is considered Europe photonics of the 5 key technologies to facilitate industrial competitiveness in the European Union.
In Plásmales we celebrate the International Year of Light with Flash You, a new feature that lets you innovate in the field of events using light to create unforgettable and amazing experiences.
Flash You get involved with the participants and put them at the center of action for them to be the protagonists. The operation is based on assigning a different mobile screen of each attendee and from there start building color. Lighting rhythms, murals, mosaics, etc. games and infinite, without the need for cardboard or paper, with all the possibilities that we can play with the brightness of our Smartphone.
The limit of what can be done depends on your creativity.
Dare to dream,
We’ll help you make it happen!
