I jumped at the chance to to post this video since it combines a few of our favorite things: Christmas, Raspberry Pi, and Star Wars all rolled into one project. Posting under the name Chivalry Timbers, this maker created a MIDI-synced Christmas light display that uses the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins connected to solid state relays to turn the lights on and off. Click through to the full project writeup to see how it was done and a few more videos of the display in action! [via Raspberry Pi]
