25,000 Dancing Lights

Near my hometown, a man wired his home with 25,000 lights and synched their movements with 12 minutes of Christmas music.

  • December 5, 2005

My father sent me this story from the Cincinnati Enquirer, about a man who has taken the Christmas season to an entirely new level.

Carson Williams’ two-story home is decorated top to bottom with 25,000 Christmas lights – but that’s just the beginning. He used software to program them to 12 minutes of Christmas music. The result is a dancing display of synchronized lights that he says you have to see to believe.

The video can be seen here (it’s the link in the green holiday box). It’s been circulating on the Internet for a bit, but as we barrel into the holiday season, I thought I’d pass this along to those who have missed it. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’ll have to see it to believe it…

The race is on to define the new blockchain era. Get a leg up at Business of Blockchain 2019.
