There’s a great new holiday lights event for residents starting Dec. 18. at the Google campus in Kirkland. As an added bonus, because it’s coming from Google’s Kirkland campus, it may be one of the most high tech lights displays in our community.
A group of Kirkland Googlers have given the campus’ holiday lights their own high-tech spin this year. They’ve designed and installed a spectacular show consisting of over 8,000 LEDs that will be synchronized to music, and available for public viewing. The team used both off-the-shelf hardware components and custom software to connect the lights to sequencing software that controls the lights’ color and intensity. Visitors can tune into 95.3 FM to listen to the music, or hear it from speakers mounted in the courtyard.
The show will light up from 6-9 p.m., from December 18 through January 5. If you are passing by, check it out at 747 6th Street South, Kirkland, WA 98033.
Also, since we are talking about lights, we would be remiss if we didn't share this image of an amazing home of one dedicated Kirkland Seahawks fan.
