A little while back, a few Aussies got together to create a cool product called Light. They threw it up on Kickstarter but failed to achieve their high funding targets, and struggled further when trying to achieve private funding, too. So what do you do with an awesome product that nobody wants to back? You reinvent it, of course. Meet the Holiday.

The Holiday by MooresCloud is essentially the exposed guts of its Light product. Cut away the pleasant square box from around the Light and you find a rope of intelligent LEDs that respond intelligently to various inputs. For some perspective, here’s what the Light looks like:

The Holiday introduces itself as “the world’s smartest Christmas lights”, but providing you can change the colour of the rope lights however you like, there’s no reason you can’t leave these up on your balcony or even inside all-year round.

You can get a special pre-order price on the Holiday right now of $129, but it normally retails at $199. [Holiday]
