Below at Hackaday, we discover Xmas time extremely exciting because it indicates an influx of vacation-themed hacks that seriously enable us get into the festive mood. [Andrew’s] programmable Xmas tree hosted at HackMyXmas is certainly just one of our favorites. The undertaking is made up of a 500 RGB LEDs wrapped around a usual Xmas tree and controlled by a Teensy. Nevertheless, not settling for the usual, simple and cyclical pattern for the LEDs, [Andrew] decided the tree experienced to be programmable of program! So, a single board personal computer (a C.H.I.P) jogging Linux was used to present a Wifi link and a net server to conveniently software the tree.
We applaud [Andrew] mammoth effort for invoking programming in these types of a entertaining way! You can check out the stay stream of [Andrew]’s Xmas tree under.
