Synchronized Xmas Lights

Picture Of The Day: Carson Williams of Mason, Ohio, synchronized the Christmas display at his house to music. He used his electrical engineering skills to have the 25,000 lights blink in tune with "Wizard In Winter," a song by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Instead of blasting it on speakers, he broadcast the song on a low-power FM station to keep from bothering the neighbors (although you have to wonder how they feel about the lights). Unfortunately, the house attracted so many visitors that the police asked him to shut it down, which he did yesterday, so now you can only see it online.
