This year I finally upgraded my Christmas light display to be computer controlled and synchronized to music. After seeing the Carson Willams video from last year, I knew I wanted to do this. Here is a video of the Wizards In Winter song. It took me a year of planning, building, programming, and debugging to make this happen. Hopefully you guys like it.

Very impressive Hobbes. That must be quite a site in New York. Have you considered maybe submitting that video to http://www.ebaumsworld.com ?

They have a thing where if you submit a video that you made and they post it on their page, they will give you a cash prize. You can read about it here: http://upload.ebaumsworld.com/

I don't know whether or not you are familiar with that site.

That was schweet! I especially like the rotating window lights near 2:10 and the color changing to go with the beat.

Overall it was synced very, very well. Awesome job Wink

The music is broadcast to the people in their cars using a small FM transmitter connected to the computer. It is the type of transmitter that is normally used for an IPOD but I modified it to get enough range to reach a couple hundred feet away. That way I am not annoying the neighbors with loud music. I only annoy them with the blinking lights. 8)

That song took me a really long time to get the lights synchronized. I probably spent about 15-20 hours working on it. Every time I thought I was finished, I would see something that I wanted to change. Even now there are some parts that I am thinking about re-working.

My inspiration for doing this was the Carson Williams video that circulated the internet last year. It was so popular that Miller Lite Beer used it in a commercial last year.

Enjoy the lights...

Pretty awesome. You should enter it into some contests. Also, I'm pretty sure that FM transmitter is probably illegal. Haha. Nobody will probably notice or care with a 100 foot range, though. Good luck on adding more in future years.

I just saw a new one on TV while watching the football game(s). From lite, again, and wasn't as good as the original, maybe, but same song, and it was cool nonetheless Very Happy
