LED Christmas Lights Truned Into IM Contact Indicators Using Microsoft .NET Micro Framework

Andrej Kyselica wrote a driver for the FEZ .NET Micro Framework embedded controller to individually-control a set of hackable GE-35 LED Christmas lights.

The end result is decoratively festive yet arguably functional. Check out the set up and an overview of the project in the video below:
