CheerLights is a worldwide network of multicolored lights that are synchronized together. When one color changes, all of the lights around the world change to that color. Colors are changed by sending a Tweet mentioning “cheerlights” and a color. This project is part of ioBridge Labs where we spend time on research and development of new projects, typically focused on the Internet of Things. CheerLights emerged from one of our Skunk Works projects.
We have the distinct honor of being nominated for an award. CheerLights has been nominated by Postscapes for the Best DIY Internet of Things project project for 2012. These are the 2nd annual Internet of Things Awards. Last year, we won for TideAlerts – our open network of tide level monitoring stations.
