Aura’s Wireless Christmas Lights

Grannies get high, Intel's high-tech bangle, Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year and more in our weekly look at the web

With just about everything going wireless these days, the team behind Aura thought it was time Christmas tree lights got the same treatment. After becoming fed up with untangling a never-ending mess of lights each year, Aura is introducing the first-ever wireless Christmas tree lights. Shaped like ornaments and offered in white or multicolor, the wireless bulbs will light up when they’re near a central “Power Ring,” allowing you to freely decorate your tree. Help fund them now on Kickstarter, and be sure to check out the more advanced WiFi option.
