Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates.
In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name
of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000,
Technology Associates successfully operated a small
chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold
and serviced computers.

Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself
of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores
to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight
and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops
and Derone Bryson. In 2007,
the organization formerly known as Technology
Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and
Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.
This site is still a
functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products

the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before
the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.
Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops
is privately employed in a manufacturing company as
it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various
projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends
and continue to explore new opportunities together.
Zzz...LiteTM / Zzz...FlameTM
A night-time bedside companion!
A photronic sleep-aid!
A bottle of tranquility or fascination!
A cool, new kinda light!
Having trouble sleeping?|
Don't try a bottle of pills,
try our new bottle of light!
Zzz..LITE was designed by the makers of the world famous
EternaLight series LED flashlights as night time companion.
Zzz..LITE is calming and relaxing to watch. Its candle like
behavior and spectral diversity inspires sleep if you're
tired and relaxation if you just need to "chill." And if
you just need a soft light to read by or to turn on and
take to the bathroom, the Zzz...LITE's clever "shake-on"
functionality makes turning it on in the dark easy and fun.
Use it to lull cranky children to sleep or just keep it by
your bedside as a handy light. Zzz...LITE incorporates
Technology Associatesí LED and microprocessor technologies
to again provide convenience of use, long battery life,
long functional life and a truly unique lighting device.
Shake Zzz...Lite once and it becomes a spectral candle, smoothly transitioning
through thousands of colors yet gradually becoming dimmer and behaving
candle about to go out. Until, after about fifteen minutes, it
finally goes off.|
Shake Zzz...Lite 5 times or more and Zzz...Lite provides a soft
lantern-like white light for lighting your way, reading or whatever
your night-time need is. Shake it again, Zzz...Lite turns off!
It's too easy! Not only can a two year old child use it, you
will have a hard time getting it away from them!
Zzz...LITE stands almost 7.5 inches tall and is almost 2.75 inches in diameter.
Uses three AA alkaline batteries (not included).
"I really like it. The night performance is great. NO
KIDDING....my daughter has already taken control of it. It is totally
fool proof in its operation. It is her night light and used for going
to the john also. I showed her once how to work it. It is
that simple." - CPF:Wolfman

Zzz...Lite or Zzz...Flame?|
The Zzz...Lite is very cool for sure. But some people want something with a
little more "Fire" than the smooth even glow of the tranquil Zzz...Lite.
If that's the case, the Zzz...Flame is just for you. In every way the
Zzz...Flame (above) is like the Zzz...Lite (shown earlier) except it is
made with a more
transparent body. The Zzz...Flame lets much more light out and in its raw
glory so you can see the natural projections and color points. Zzz...Flame is
called this because the brilliant colors almost look like flames burning
inside, a natural effect due to the brilliance of the LEDs and the bottle's
longitudinal diffusion. We don't know which one people like better.
This is because, when put side by side, people usually say
"well I would one of each!" So, maybe you can decide!
Special! Only $24.99 each!
