Merry Christmas! How about building yourself a Christmas Hat?!

One project I've been involved in is the creation of a new website to support developers and makers to use the new Intel Edison micro computer. This tiny device has a full Linux operating system on it, plus built-in bluetooth and wifi - making it the perfect wearable computer to put in my Christmas hat!
