I’m Dreaming of a Green Motherboard Holiday

Celebrate Chanuka or the Yuletide with these recycled LED motherboard kits.

Some people still don’t know a lot about Judaism despite the fact that Jews invented monotheism, bagels, special relativity, and White Christmas…what, you don’t know from Irving Berlin? Oy. Anyway, since Jewish holidays are always moving around (on the Gregorian calendar), folks sometimes wonder if Chanuka is more like Thanksgiving or Christmas. As far as I’m concerned, they can call it whatever they like as long as they keep the presents coming, but you and I know it’s its a completely unique holiday with its own special shpiel.

Of all the symbols of the holiday, the chanukiya, the Chanuka menorah, is central. Without it, it wouldn’t be much of a festival of lights! The glow from the menorah (and by the eighth day, its sheer BTUs) warms our hearts only slightly less than Bubbe Ruth’s latkes, so logically lots of chanukiyot would be even more Chanuka-licious. Yet as much as you’d like to keep a menorah aflame on your cube wall, on every windowsill, on top of your TV, and in bed with you, your insurance company and/or OSHA would soon be paying you a visit, if the fireman didn’t get there first.

Motherboard Menorah

Our Motherboard Menorah is lit by eight red LEDs and an LED shamas (the head, um, diode). Configure the lights for each day of Chanuka with a 9-bit DIP switch, just as the ancients set their dot-matrix printers for double-spacing. Made from two interlocking printed circuit boards that mount atop a standard 9V battery for ballast, you can set this menorah anywhere to share the chag sameach with friends, neighbors, and even people who shouldn’t be allowed to play with matches.

Motherboard Christmas Tree

Our Motherboard Christmas Tree is lit by 16 red LEDs which blink in a festive holiday cheery sort of way. Made from two interlocking printed circuit boards that mount atop a standard 9V battery for ballast, you can set your Motherboard Christmas Tree anywhere you want, except, apparently the Capitol Rotunda in Washington State.

Rev Yaakov’s rabbinical note: Electronic menorahs (like electric menorahs) are just for fun. Make sure you also celebrate with an oil or candle chanukiyah that you can bless.
