An electronic wreath, intense flashing lights, large blow-ups which can talk…holiday displays are getting more and more intense by the year, and that’s just among the ones I’ve seen in my neighborhood!
I know yard decorations have been around longer than the information technology industry, but lately, it seems like they’re getting incredibly intricate, large, and very assertive.
I’m not bemoaning this, mind you! To the contrary, I’m solidly here for anybody who wants to make a statement using their property and enlisting the help of about 3 billion LED lights, projectors, and blow-up caricatures to do so.
But seeing these intense displays got me thinking: do technology professionals use their technology skills to create holiday displays at home?
Our colleagues at CE Pro write about technology in the home all the time. But I’m talking about folks who also have experience in the world of IT departments and building management.
Have you ever used an outdoor screen, projection, or intricate lighting & control technology to create a holiday display for your home, yard, or business front?
If you have flexed your technology professional muscles in this way before, please go ahead and show us!
