Putting up the Christmas lights on your house is only nice after you’re done. Until that point, it’s hours of untangling cables, climbing up & down the ladder and dodging snow & ice spots.
After all that effort, Darren Taylor found it dreadful to take them down again, only 2 weeks after. It was well into the spring that his buddy, Ross Harke, would still tease him about it.
So they came up with a solution that would save everybody’s time and energy, in the moment we need it the most: during busy holidays. They called it EverLights.
@MyEverLights are made of little LED buds that you simply can’t spot during the day. But by night, they light up in the color of your choice, from an application on your phone.
Darren shares in the interview, other things we can do with the EverLights and how else he’s planning to make them even more interesting.
