Want to see a real modern genius in action? Guitar Hero may be on the back side of the popularity mountain, but one thing is for sure — Ric Turner, former Disney Imagineer, is a genius. The reason for his ingeniousness is for his creation, “Christmas Light Hero”. Obviously based off of Guitar Hero, Ric recorded a perfect run of Eric Johnson’s “Cliffs of Dover” for the base video material. The 21,268 lights and LEDs display the recorded video on the garage door while the audio is actual gameplay audio from a Wii. Essentially it’s a jumbo geek fest with lights and sounds. The icing on the cake is the fact that the audio is broadcast on local 99.1 FM so anyone in the area can tune in and listen to you play your heart out.

Ways to improve for next year: Bump up the displayed difficulty level from “Easy” to something a tad more difficult. Though the fact that Ric even attempted such an undertaking is impressive enough. Feast your eyes on the video below and be prepared to be amazed…
