image Christmas Tree Connected to CheerLights with the Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266

Over the weekend, we saw a tweet demonstrating a CheerLights Christmas Tree. It looks beautiful!

Christmas Tree Connected to CheerLights

The Christmas tree uses the Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 Wi-Fi board to make the connection to ThingSpeak to get the latest CheerLights color.

Have you ever wanted to tweet at your Christmas tree to change its color? Well now you can! Follow this guide to build a set of Christmas lights which will connect to CheerLights. Anyone can tweet @cheerlights with a color, and all CheerLights-connected devices all over the world will update to that color.

Check out the project on Instructables.
