    This person has entirely too much free time on their hands.
    Not to mention money.

    Actually, people can win BIG money for putting up displays like that.

    Especially if theyre creatively done
    Hopefully more and more people switch over to LED lighting, so that power consumption is less, AND it opens the doors of so many other creative things as you don't have to purchase a Heavy duty controller like this guy did. (He was an EE, so he had the money)

    Heres a cheap small project controller..

    Okay. I stand corrected. This person has far too much time on their hands.

    Holy Shit !!!!
    Pink Floyd doesn't even have a light show that complicated.

    There is a household in the neighbourhood that has gone completely overboard.
