TechBits: high-tech Christmas lights (07.03)

You probably don't think of Christmas tree lights as high-tech, but one company is changing that.

Rigado has come out with Lumenplay, a line of Bluetooth controlled lights. {}You can use your smartphone to change the colors and patterns. {}That means you can use the lights for much more than Christmas. {}The smart phone app lets you select from a wide variety of colors- and you can even program patterns into how the colors are displayed.

Rigado is using a crowd-sourcing web site to raise money for producing the lights.
