A very merry internet of things Christmas

It’s that time of the year where people try to connect their Christmas lights to the internet. This used to be a rather maker-based endeavour but it’s taken on new heights with the past year’s corporate interest in the topic. So here are the top 5 connected Christmas lights projects:

1. OpenPicus lets you control the lights on the Christmas tree in Rome’s airport.

2. Moorescloud let you control the lights on the Christmas tree in Darling Harbour in Sydney.

3. Cheerlights lets you tweet colours to some Christmas lights in the IOBridge office.

4. Cheertree lets you tweet colours to it.

5. And of course you can make it yourself thanks to this How to guide from Make magazine.

PS: Last minute addition to the list is Sony’s NFC Christmas tree (thanks Pierre)

Happy Christmas!
