    Geelong has just built a 25m high floating Mega Tree. Anyone seen it in the flesh. It would be an awesome sight I reckon. It has 11,000 reflective discs and can be synchronised to music through a downloadable app. Cost $1 million to make, store and maintain over 5 years.

    Was anyone here involved or does anyone have any details on what was used.

    Geelong 25m Mega Tree in Victoria

    Live stream music is here http://centralgeelong.com.au/christmas/ I have not been to look at it yet, I listen to the music the first night. It is the classic Christmas songs. 8:30pm start. (UTC +11 hours)

    I put this link on the chat room last week http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/news/geelong/geelongs-star-is-on-the-rise-as-christmas-tree-takes-shape/story-fnjuhovy-1227119498564

    The day it open http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/news/geelong/floating-christmas-tree-greeted-with-gasps-of-delight/story-fnjuhovy-1227131485650 Large number of people turned up.

    25m tree, top star 3.8 wide, 400m (cable) of LED lighting. So there are leds inside it, and external lights which shire on to the reflective disks.

    Running late this year, can not compete with the height, current plan tree is about 5-6m, if I went over 8 meters I would need council approval. Some how I think I would not get it. :)

    This person record the music from the live stream FLOATING Christmas Tree
