DIY Angry Birds Christmas Display is an Interactive Game [Video]

From the same guy that brought you the playable Guitar Hero Christmas display, enjoy a peek at a fully interactive Angry Birds light show.

From the YouTube video description of the project:

Help! The pigs are trying to ruin Christmas. Grab the sling shot and fire those birds! From the people who brought you the Guitar Hero Christmas Light game! Running on two computers and 10 Light-o-rama 16 channel controllers, uses more than 20,000 lights and less than one cent of electricity per game. Audio is broadcast on 99.1FM, and the controller has a long enough cord for people to play in their cars on the street. Easier than the iPhone version, and bigger too.

20,000 addressable lights? If we lived next door to this guy we’d start making requests. Who’s up for a game of Fruit Ninja on the front of his house?

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Well, I needed a good laugh for the day. That was hysterical. Can’t imagine what his neighbors want to do to him though. Thanks, and happy holidays!
