Alek informs me that he really is up to amazing X10 cam tricks with lights and inflating Homers despite the fact that it was a hoax back in 2002. It really is amazing then.
Alek Komarnitsky has
(not!?) set up a remarkable use of remote online control at his house for Halloween, with 3 webcams, light switches, and inflatables controlled by the viewers. Amazing. NOT Amazing.
100% simulation from 2002-2004 … see http://www.komar.org/christmas/hoax.
100% real from 2005 on … ditto the over $14,000 raised for Celiac Disease – see the University of Maryland website – http://www.celiaccenter.org/news_xmas.asp
It’s fantastic. he’s back this year in 2011!
