Full-scale LED Christmas tree inspired by classic kit

As a followup to our Geek Wreath from a few years ago, we decided to make a Geek Tree inspired by the velleman 3D tree kit. Construction was funded by our new company Neighborhood Workshop.

Nice. Added bonus – looks like it can fold up and be stored flat for next year. Anyone else expect to see a car battery used as a base? More pics and info on the construction process on Flickr.
