If you thought you had a cool Christmas tree then engineer Jordy Moos can absolutely blow you out of the water.
Because the 31-year-old’s festive tree was interactive. So interactive you could play a game of Snake on it.
Remember when the simple game was all the rage on our Nokia phones? Well, Jordy decided to pay tribute to the 90s fave by incorporating it into his tree.
The software engineer who works for the PB Web Media in Amsterdam spent more than 100 hours putting it altogether.
Jordy tells Metro.co.uk that he conceived the idea last Christmas and began putting the system together in February of this year.
He began by creating the LED system on the ground first, uploading videos on his social media with tutorials.
‘Making this took I think over 100 hours,’ he explained.
‘But that is mainly because most of the hardware work was new for me. So I had to do a lot of research and had a lot of time spend trying things.’
It was all worth it too when Jordy was able to sit back and enjoy hours of gameplay with the tree.
Although Jordy did explain how the whole thing was put together in technical terms which he referred to as ‘nerdy’, we’re not the most tech-savvy folks so the words are just words to us.
If you would like to create your own interactive tree, feel free to watch the tutorial breaking it down.
Proving that practice makes perfect, Jordy tried several methods and programs that did not work out.
Eventually, he was able to enjoy the fruits of his labour which he shared on Twitter where it went viral.

And you might think putting together an LED masterpiece might be quite tricky, but the only concern Jordy had was his cat.
‘When setting up the LEDs in the Christmas tree I had some delays because the cats took out some of the LEDs,’ he explained.
‘The LEDs needs to stay in their fixed position and are not allowed to move for the system to work.
‘And at a certain point, you will need a camera and the cat threw the camera off the table.’
Great work Jordy, you’ve created the only tree that’s justified to stay up past Christmas and the new year.
