The holidays are a feast for the senses—from the taste of cookies and cocoa to the sound of jingle bells and the scent of pine trees. And oh yeah, the sight of hundreds of thousands of blinking lights everywhere you look. (Half a million on one house, if you happen to visit the world-record-setting Richards residence near Canberra, Australia.)
Even if you don’t want to go full Clark Griswold this year, we found 12 high-tech ways to make the season just a little brighter. They range from DIY snow machines and animated light shows all the way to plug-and-play products that require no knowledge of circuitry or soldering. However you celebrate, we wish you a wonderful, safe, and high-tech holiday season.
