Holiday Lights that Harmonize Around the Globe


Make this festive season one to remember with a project you can build for around $25 over a weekend and share in with your your friends and family.

Grab a mince pie and a cup of coffee as we build your very own Festive Lights decoration that is powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero W and Docker containers. It’ll synchronise its colour globally across the world in real-time and is controllable through Twitter using the Cheerlights platform.
