#HackYourHoliday Design Challenge Winner!

T'was the Season for Tinkering

January 7, 2015

We received a ton of awesome projects this holiday season. From decorations to gifts, cloud controlled Christmas Trees to New Years Eve countdown machines. We’d like to highlight a few of our favorites and announce the winner.

 

WINNER OF #HACKYOURHOLIDAY:

Wizarding Wand

Timothy High wanted to bring the magic of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter back home to Brazil for the holidays. So he created some spells with the magic cloudBit and crafted a wizarding wand for his daughter! It was great to see Timothy figure out the best way to make the wand by consulting fellow community members over on our forum. Congrats Timothy, we can’t wait to see your magical Smart Home projects!
