A Rust-powered Christmas tree.

I bought a 3D Xmas Tree for Raspberry Pi and assembled it using these instructions.

It is plugged onto a Raspberry Pi Zero, mounted on an appropriately shaped metal base (part of an old argicultural feed drill).

I then wrote a simple Rust program to make the lights flash. I cross-compile from my Mac, with Ragnaroek's rust-on-raspberry-docker container. On Linux it builds without any tricks.

See the github repo for code and instructions.
