Penn State Athletics Unveils App Feature To Create Synchronized Light Shows

You’re not the only thing that’ll be getting lit on gamedays.

Penn State Athletics recently unveiled an in-app feature that allows fans to sync their phones to a programmed light show.

In the past, fans have pulled out their phones and turned on the flashlight for the playing of “All of the Lights.” The new app feature takes this idea to a whole new level.

To take part in the light show, you’ll first need to download the Penn State Athletics app. It’s better to do it now so that you don’t have to fight for cellular service on gameday.

Be sure you download the new app that says “Nittany Lions” and not the old app that says “PennStateAthetics.” You can download the correct one here.

In order to participate in the light show, you must enable microphone and camera permission.

Once you launch the app on your phone, navigate to the button that says “Lions Lights.” An event coordinator will let you know when the show is ready to begin, and the program will take over from there to create the light show.

There’s even a feature to take photos and videos while the light show is occurring.

It’s unclear if Beaver Stadium will use the new feature on Saturday’s gameday, but Athletics has used it for a number of sporting events this year, including last week’s volleyball game.
