About 2 years ago I found these amazing little computers. I saw the IO pins and thought how cool is that that I now have a real computer that I can interact directly with the world around me. At the same time I was beginning to get into stage tech (sound and lights), which I still love. and I thought to myself: how crazy would it be if i could control these lights with a Raspberry Pi, really crazy.
Well I fell short of that exact goal but rather took it into a different direction. I thought about my favorite holiday, Christmas, and it hit me that I could make a Christmas lights display that would be "choreographed" and well that's when I began to research and put together what you will see here.
