This is an intelligent add-on for each LED in a string of regular
Christmas lights, that turns a random bunching of the lights, for
instance around the branches of a tree or bush, into a 3D display.
The add-on would include minimal versions of a magnetic spatial
positioning sensor, a Bluetooth
like communications system, a map
of the surrounding LEDs and a way to act as a minimal server in a
network. Boy am I out of my league here. I guess this would be like
a spatial and functional network of minimal computers that could
know where each other were communicate with each other to run
virtual programs and act as their own display. If something like this
developed I guess it could include a minimal independent positioning
system so that you wouldn't need a tree for support. And I guess we
could throw in there a wireless way to convey power from one unit
to the next and we would have a real swarm. So minimal
3d holiday light display
