All-LED lights display for 2005
« on: December 06, 2005, 04:24:02 pm »
Tonight my 2005 lights display was turned on for the first time. It comprises entirely of LED lights, all in blue and white with the theme of snow & ice, or "A Winter Wonderland". This is the first time I have used only LEDs, although LED lights have played a part in almost all of my displays in some form or another. Just over 6500 lights, but the whole lot consumes only a little over 2-1/2 amps! For some preliminary photos, an almost-complete archive of past displays, and also a live Webcam that updates once per minute, please see my Displays site at http://bulbmuseum.net/displays .

(and I have attached one of those photos below too)

If anyone else here puts anything up at this time of year, I`d love to see your lights too, post a photo or two here if you like. Seasons Greetings everyone!

:D

Looks great Chris - I really like the color!  You should save a bundle on your electric bill by using all LEDs.  Thanks for sharing the photo.

Thanks, glad you like it!

I know that video well, it is the 2004 display from a fellow called Carson Williams in Mason Ohio, and is rather well known, it`s strange how that video has spread so fast and so far this year. It`s real (some people reckon it`s faked from stills, etc), and if you see http://planetchristmas.com and in particular, browse through the messages in the oddly titled "Chat Room" (it`s actually not a chat room, but rather message board) you`ll see many others of a similar idea from many people over the US and worldwide. Some folk have been computerising their light shows for years but thanks to commercially available products, and no doubt the overwhelming success of that video, it`s getting more and more popular. I`m tempted myself, but for logistical reasons I can`t do anything like that sort of scale while I`m still here.

Still, looks fantastic and that Trans Siberian Orchestra soundtrack is just perfect, infact there are a couple of other PC members who`ve used that particular song for their own shows too.

:D
