Update 16: Play with our Christmas Lights!
Howdy, Merry Christmas and a big thank you to the more than 400 of you who have already pre-ordered your Lights at store.moorescloud.com - we really appreciate your support.
Although we said we'd be going on holidays, we wanted to share "One more thing..."
We have five of our six prototype Lights arranged beneath a small Christmas tree in Sydney - where it's currently 30 degrees Celsius (that's 86F). You can watch them live on Ustream, at this URL:
The two Lights on top - Rose and Violet - can be controlled by you!
Rose is controlled by Cheerlights, which is an Internet-wide system that allows people anywhere in the world to set the color of Christmas lights all over the world via Twitter. Simply send a tweet with the hashtag #Cheerlights in it, and include one of the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet, magenta, white or warmwhite. It takes a few minutes, but Rose (top left) will change to the Cheerlights color.
Violet is controlled by some software we've been work on over the last few days. Any tweet with the #MooresCloud hashtag in it is received by Violet and scanned for colors (legal colors are the same as above, plus pink and black). Violet will also respond to RGB hash colors in the format #RRGGBB. Please note that the Light uses 7 bit color, so #010101 is the same as #818181. Do not follow color values with commas.
Changes to Violet (top right) should be visible within a few seconds. If you send multiple colors within a tweet, Violet will sequentially animate through the colors at half second intervals.
Happy Holidays from The MooresCloud Team!
