Holiday lights go techie

It's not just throw out a bunch of lights and watch them shine in the nighttime. You've got to set them to music... all with the help of technology. Check out just a few.

Have you seen the reality show on TV? It shows people setting up an elaborate scheme of lights, music and lawn characters. Think Clark W. Griswold times 100! Never mind the mounds and mounds of electric wiring (along with additional panels) and the bill that goes along that, some use software to sync up the music with the flickering lights. So get in the holiday spirit and peruse through these videos.

OK I have never seen Slayer in any holiday specials, but why not. I do think this might scare the kids in the neighborhood though.
