CheerLights Glitter Tree
[Paul Gorman] decided to mod his Christmas tree topper. He added an RGB LED to illuminate his star on top of his Christmas tree. The color that is glows is the latest CheerLights color. The wise men could have used this on their journey.
[Randy Farmer] constructed a giant CheerLights tree using strands of G35 Collr Effects Christmas lights. We found the project via Twitter. We love how big it is and how awesome it looks in the dark.
[Dennis Adams] built a holiday wreath that displays animated color patterns and the latest CheerLights color. The build steps are on Sector67 with photos - it was great to see parts of the process and see the wreath come to life. The parts include addressable RGB Strip LEDs from Cool Neon (TCLPXL50), an Arduino, an Internet Gateway (laptop), and Ping-Pong balls!

[Leif Bloomquist] created a CheerLights display for the Commodore 64 using KipperBASIC. Check out the C64 CheerLights project and get a holiday glow from the 8-bit artistry!
I am absolutely loving this implementation of CheerLights. Thanks for bringing back some great memories. The C64 CheerLights logo has filled me with Christmas cheer!
The team behind Moore’s Cloud Light have setup a live video stream of a CheerLights display using a few of their innovative lights.

[Randy] from Lafayettech Labs created a CheerLights glowing snowman connected to the world via a Teensy Arduino and a bit of Perl code to glue it all together. The translucent snowperson shows its colors with a single RGB LED.
The folks here at ioBridge Labs is really honored to have CheerLights be nominated by Postscapes for the Best DIY Internet of Things Project of 2012 - we didn’t even have to nominate ourselves, which makes it even sweeter! We are thankful to be included with many fine projects. We happen to think CheerLights is a shining example of the Internet of Things. CheerLights is a global network of socially connected lights. This ties a lot of technology together and at the end, it’s simple way to show that we are all connected.
