The Times Square ball drop seems to be a favorite among inventors, and this device just takes it to the next level. The invention discloses a celebratory device comprising a confetti blower with LED digital display. At a predetermined time, the ball descends from the top of the pole and as it drops pole lamps illuminate and the LED display show the time. When the ball reaches the bottom of the pole, the LED display will indicate the time and and all the celebratory features of the device will be activated.


3. Champagne tower

No New Year’s Eve celebration is complete without champagne, and what better way to serve it than through a champagne tower.  This invention makes the structure more dynamic by adopting a water-tank and pump to allow the circulation of the liquid to form the motive effect, thereby improving the entertainment-value of the champagne tower. Plus, the tower structure comes with its own lighting device and a fog effect port!


4. Icon fireworks

5. Firework light

Several transparent radial rods connected with the ball. According to the invention, “the flashlight provided at the center in the ball can separately flash to form an internal central exploding point, the radial rods can flash sequentially to thereby strengthen the effect of a real firework for the firework light.”
