The latest incarnation of the famous Times Square crystal ball goes off (or down) tonight. This version is a 12 foot geodesic sphere, which is apparently twice the size of previous years, and it weighs in at just under 6 tons. Oh sure, it’s still covered with Waterford Crystals (some 2,668 of them), but it’s also sporting LED lights this year that are capable of displaying over 16 million colors. But don’t worry, since the ball is only on TV for about a minute, you won’t see most of them.
