Forget about ZigBee and other advanced wireless technologies. Let's just do it like this guy:
Can't be done more simple than that!
You're absolutely right. This member is stupid. Please help.
Of course he really should be using resistors with those LEDs ;)
The switches, themselves, are bogus.
The are wires connected to only one tab of each switch. The other tab just hangs there.
There is far too much hidden to even guess what is happing. Not worth the effort.

Reading the comments under video it seems there is a lot of induction involved. Talk of the LEDs being machined out to house a coil etc. All that is needed in the paper is thin wires.
As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here.
No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.

Interesting to watch.
If one micro-machined the interior of the LEDs and put a coil and driver inside the LED case they would have to be very small.
I have a hard time imagining the field strength need to induce an adequate current in a micro sized coil to power the LED.
