The Most Incredible Raspberry Pi Powered Holiday Light Show Ever? #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
I can almost guarantee that this is the most incredible light show you’ll see all year and it’s powered by Raspberry Pi! via johnsonlightshow.com
There are no inflatables, characters, blow molds, or other “traditional” elements. Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom sound track composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, movie clips and even our children! The result is an exciting show that feels like a dance party! Even the lights are not traditional, we use Pixels which are similar to what you would see in a stadium Jumbotron. Each pixel can be controlled individually and set to any color and intensity. This means many more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights! The show embodies the spirit of DIY and cutting edge technology with all custom built elements, kit based controllers, and both custom and open source software. We hope you like our show, thanks for visiting!
If you enjoy the show do yourself a favor and watch the behind the scenes video!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
