General Electric has found a way to shine a light on the performance of athletes during the Olympics. 

Athletes are now light painters, with the help of GE

The company is using biometric sensors and LEDs that turned into digital paintbrushes when recorded using slow motion video and long exposure photography. 

"These analog impulses are captured via sensor, converted into digital information, and with our custom software, measured, cleaned (there is a significant amount of 'noise' that the sensors pick up when connected to the body), and re-converted into analog information that drives a series of red, green, and blue LED lights," – says Steve Pepe from GE.
