Welcome to the official Idle Hands Dev. Store.
This is an internet connected Christmas ornament that can be programmed to do different things over wifi. Just the bare PCB.
They use an ESP8266 to control LEDs and piezo speaker and all of the documentation including a video can be found on HackADay.io (Below). Its fully open source.
These are an early version of the boards that have a sleeping current of 8mA which means they will kill a AAA battery in about a day. I used them as gifts last year and they work great, even with the current draw, but the new version will have the fixed sleep current. I just told people to just put the battery in on Christmas day, instead of the two weeks before.

My name is Sean Hodgins. I've been making, building and inventing things for some time now. It started as a hobby but has grown to be more than that. I'm currently doing my Masters at McMaster University in mechanical engineering. Ironically, a lot of what I'm doing is electrical. I love making open source projects, often this is because I just want to build something for myself. If others find it interested they should be able to use my work to aid them in the building process. Free, open information is large part of who I am and what I believe in. I'm constantly trying to challenge myself with new skills and personal development.
