I loved this video, but I have a "weird" question: what was the font used at the beginning to spell Hong Kong? I would love to use it in my projects.

Same reason we don't see Model Ts still running around. They're romantic yes, but we can relegate them to the enthusiasts and hobbyists. There is a place for preservation and conservation but society as a whole needs to move forward.

0:30 I’ve been there just yesterday when this comment was made. It is one of the streets in Mong Kok with all the small night shops. I am pretty sure.

I think LED can also be made into the forms of traditional Chinese characters, but it will cost a little more money.

LEDs lightings are more suitable for in house lighting. NEON lights are still more aesthetically pleasing and dramatic for Signages.

The night scene like a surreal movie set with smells, sounds and noise, chaotic and disorderly order ,a bit sense of danger and tension in the air, exciting and igniting. A twirl of suction of everything, all energies of mismatch and mishap all together in a split second, you are overloaded with information and overwhelmed. Too much going on around you at the same time! Too fast too. Cinematic and dramatic. That s HK.

yokcos - پیش 5 روز
so neon lights, relative to LEDs, are expensive, unsafe, difficult to make, and inefficient? Sounds like LEDs taking over is a great idea.

Ritvik Khandelwal Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Shenzen’s skylines look much more futuristic as they were all built more recently with huge glass windows. If you like the old school concrete buildings then New York and Chicago are the skylines to enjoy.

I'm not a big fan of Vox. I won't go there.
I will say I was surprised. This is an interesting and informative video as I had first assumed, (You know; "ass-u-me". heh-heh), that they were going to say something about the Chinese government.
I guess I spoke to soon. Right after I wrote the above he talks about how government regulations came down on "unsafe" signs through "safety codes".
I hate, Hate, HATE the Better Homes and Gardens Gestapo that is Code Enforcement that dictates every part of what you do to your own home. How high fences and hedges can be. Having to get expensive permits to put in a f-ing window. I think you even have to get a permit to re-frame a door in your house. You see these "new" cities being created in places like California. The first thing they do is establish a Code Enforcement office. With Code Enforcement goons preying on people with "eyesores" like a 64 pickup truck in their back forty. What used to be rural areas are now part of the city and subject to fees, fines and every other onerous regulation.
So I guess I'm left wondering how much influence the Chinese government has on local government.

EDIT: Can see no mention was made that HK had more Neon than Las Vegas. That would have helped contextually to understand how much HK had at one point.
