Christmas music and lights, synched with a Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

RaspPi synched to midi from Chivalry Timbers blog, via RaspberryPi.org.

Chivalry Timbers (I have a feeling that’s not his real name) has gone one step further than all those people who were making flashing pumpkins earlier in the year. He’s hooked up his Pi to a house-sized set of relays and Christmas lights, some MIDI festive tunes, an amplifier and some big speakers, and he’s got the Pi synching the lights to MIDI events. The result…well, video speaks louder than words. Especially if you’ve got the volume turned up.

You can learn how to do something similar to your own electricity bill house on Chivalry Timbers’ blog, where you’ll find software and hardware instructions, a shopping guide and much more in the way of photos and video.
