CNN To Use Empire State Building To Display Election Results

CNN is taking its gadgetry to a whole new level for Election Day 2012. The network will display electoral results via colored lighting at the top of the Empire State building on Tuesday night.

Yep, that's right. The network described how it will work in a statement, "As each state is projected by CNN and electoral votes are allocated to the candidates, a vertical LED-illuminated 'meter' located atop the spire of the building will display CNN’s running tally of the race to 270."

Later, "when CNN projects a winner of the presidential election, the tower lights of the Empire State Building will change color to all-blue or to all-red."

The network, of course, has become well-known for using weebles and holograms in its election coverage. CNN recently gave viewers a preview of some of the virtual doodads they can expect on Tuesday night.
