In celebration of the winter festivities and do-ocracy, several members (Josh Meyer, Jonathan Foote, Michael Toren and Ani Niow) decided to buy a bunch of strings of LED lights from the local Walgreens, hook them up to a relay switch that's connected to a small webserver. There are two sets around each of the four windows on the west wide of the space, one set of while lights and one set that's coloured. The group programmed different patterns in Python to make them do batshit insane things. Check out the control interface here and have fun with it. Also see the wiki entry if you're interested in how it works or want to help out with the project. If you have any pictures or video of them running than please post them below!
