Well friends, today marks the end of our #12HacksOfChristmas, and what better way to end then to turn the lights out. Our first post was an SMS christmas tree and our last hack we hope will inspire an SMS christmas house! If only Clark Griswold had been able to trigger his epic light display with his telephone?! I think the old Uncle Lewis might have kicked the bucket right then.
One hacker decided to make this very scenario possible, and we think it is ahead of its time. VisionaryNutcases, an instructable user, explains how to create a twilio-triggered light display using Twilio, Temboo and Arduino. This is a fun tutorial and a great foundation for a Christmas hack and I can’t wait to see what you all out there do with this inspiration.
Finally I want to personally thank all of the hackers out there who made 2014 such a fun year for Twilio. I look forward to seeing what all of you do next year, knowing that each year it seems more and more cool ideas come to life. If you think Ricky or myself missed a cool project send it our way, and one last time… until next year, Happy Holidays and Happy Hacking!
