Christmas lights on steroids

Just a hand full of Christmas related material to add a tiny bit of festive spirit to proceedings. There’s so much to choose from it was tough to pick three but these were the maddest I could find! Bah Humbug!


Set to Frisco Wizards in Winter by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. A cool song with some astounding lights.

This 21,268-bulb display is linked to the Wii version of Guitar Hero playing “Cliffs of Dover” by Eric Johnson. Ric Turner a former special effects specialist with Disney Imagineering and creator of this display had this to say:

When you play, you watch only the Christmas lights, but the audio you hear is from the Wii, so your flubs are broadcast for all to hear (people in cars can tune 99.1 and crank it up as loud as they want.) When we are not playing, a separate version of the program that has the audio from the recorded game plays with the lights as a loop.

3,000 lights on a pickup… how very American ;) Pop on over to Gizmodo for the rundown on how it was put together.
