Holiday lights
I have been hooked on setting up holiday lights. Between nice Christmas setups and our upcoming anniversary I am investing time to work on the latest in lighting technology. They are known as RGB pixels. Each light can be controlled for any color.

My setup will evolve as the lights do.

XLights View. Software to controll the pixels.I plan on adding a star later.

This is what a sequence looks like in xlights after a few hours. This is Let it Go - from Frozen.

Controller card in Pellican case with power supply. Wired with 2 pin connectors for power and 4 pin connectors for data. I have two of these.

100 pixel snowflakes. I have 6 of them, wiring them up was fun.

The wife's inside display is pretty nice as well.

Testing the mega tree.

I did so much soldering on this project I completely melted the tip of the iron.
