FireHero is a Raspberry Pi Driven Pyrotechnic Christmas Spectacular [Video]

If you’re in the mood for a little Christmas Day rock spectacular with guitar riffs and jets of fire–and we certainly are–this video is not to be missed.

Chris Marion likes tinkering, Raspberry Pi, pyrotechnics, and awesome guitar rifts; FireHero v3 is the intersection of all these elements. In this video he rocks out to the August Burns Red rendition of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”. Sit back and enjoy the show and, if you’re so inclined to build one of these beasts yourself, hit up the link below to see exactly how he went about the project.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
