Now this is cool.
From Gizmodo: Sharp has unveiled a stunning 26-foot-tall Christmas tree made of 43 Aquos LCD televisions, which sizes ranging from 19 to 52 inches.
The gigantic TV tree is located in New York’s Grand Central Station, where people can not only admire its coordinated decoration animations, created by Japanese video artist Tsuyoshi Takashiro, but also register to win one of the Aquos panels in the tree.
If you are a New Yorker and need another reason to go to Grand Central, Sharp will also donate one dollar per registered person to a program that trains people in environmental jobs.
According to Popsci.com, there are nine different video sequences, such as a waterfall and descending snowflakes. A different set of patterns will be added in December.
