That could get very annoying very quickly. But they are obviously very good with computer graphics/simulations.

That's the best display the Cohen's have put up in years.

If this is actually on a house, I can only imagine how much the neighbors hate it. Kind of like having a cop car, with lights turned on, sitting in your driveway all night.

I haven't done a display like that, but I enjoy them, even ones that I might think are a little 'tacky', because of the energy and enthusiasm people put into creating them.

This is one of my favorites: http://vimeo.com/435084

By the way, with most of these animated displays, the music is FM broadcast to your car radio, so the neighbors aren't serenaded all night.

I live close to the Lincoln Park Zoo and every year they do "Zoo Lights." This year supposedly features 2M lights. This is a shot of the computer controlled display. Apologies for the quality but I took it with my phone.
