It’s the Holiday Season, and you know what that means, especially when you’re dealing with the Internet crowd. More and more, Christmas decorations are mimicking the things we see on the Internet on a day-to-day basis. Considering just how much the tech industry consumes our lives, this shouldn’t be a surprise.
With that in mind, allow us to introduce Ric Turner, the proud maker of the Angry Birds Christmas Light Game. Judging by the name, you might be expecting another version of Angry Birds that’s been reskinned for the Holiday season. In regards to Turner’s creation, however, the description let’s you know exactly what you are getting: a real life version of the Angry Birds game, done with Christmas tree lights.
As The Daily What points out, the YouTube page description provides the necessary details about the Angry Birds creation:
Help! The pigs are trying to ruin Christmas. Grab the sling shot and fire those birds! From the people who brought you the Guitar Hero Christmas Light game! Running on two computers and 10 Light-o-rama 16 channel controllers, uses more than 20,000 lights and less than one cent of electricity per game. Audio is broadcast on 99.1FM, and the controller has a long enough cord for people to play in their cars on the street. Easier than the iPhone version, and bigger too.
It should be noted that Turner’s creativity didn’t just appear out of nowhere. Before he turned his talents to killer Christmas light displays, Turner used to ply his trade with Disney, which helps explains his animation abilities.
