GeneralHow Difficult Would It Be? PinmemberRoger Wright10-Dec-12 5:54 
Whilst hanging innumerable Christmas lights at my lady's house this weekend (and last) it occurred to me that there is nothing stopping us from creating wire strings that contain individually-addressable lights LEDs, with a wireless controller at the power plug. IPv6 makes a virtually unlimited number of addresses available, so it's quite feasible from an addressing standpoint. Think of the fun you could have writing programs to animate the yard display, without having the deal with a bunch of electromechanical relays and such that are traditionally employed by the lunatics who make an annoying, animated display of their yards every year. Not only would it save electricity, but it would also open up a whole new field of application programming for you all! Big Grin | :-D
 
So, why isn't it already being done? What's holding us back?
