    Merry Christmas to all you amateur electricians!

    This is cool, it looks like the house is jumping.
    As the story goes, the guy that owns this house lives north ofCincinnati , Ohio .. Police were constantly being called for traffic jams and accidents in the neighborhood so they asked him to shut it downduring certain hours. Instead he started charging by car load to payoff duty police to be there.. The guy is supposedly a real computerGEEK.

    The technology to do this actually goes back to the 1970's era Stereo Color Organs that looked like a stereo speaker but had colored lights behind a feznel screen that reacted to the music.

    You can find the circuits on line to build up to 6 channel controllers yourself with parts from Radio Shack.
