BlackBerry-controlled Christmas lights


Calico CrescentThis is too cool. Some folks right here in Ottawa have networked their Christmas lights together so that not only do they work together to make patterns, but they’ve made it web-accessible so that folks online can change the lighting scheme. The best part? They’ve designed it to work with the BlackBerry browser so you can change the lightning mode right from your handheld. On top of that, the software uses XML tags which allow anyone else in the world to sync up with the project. Effing amazing. We’re gonna swing by soon and get you guys some more footage of Calico Crescent in action.
