Tech-Savvy Tannenbaums
The ABIES-Electronicus Christmas Tree Spreads High-Tech Holiday Cheer

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Dec 11, 12

The ABIES-Electronicus Christmas tree is more or less the future of the Christmas tree. This 82-foot-tall electronic tree was built by 1024 Architecture for the Belgian capital of Brussels. The tree is currently on display in Brussels’ central square.

While the tree looks ridiculously futuristic, its design is actually pretty simple. The ABIES-Electronicus Christmas tree is actually a series of scaffolds with fabric draped over them. There are video projectors and speakers mounted onto the scaffolds, and there is a viewing gallery that lets visitors check out the square from atop the tree. Natural Christmas trees are all well and good, but multimedia Tannenbaums appear to be the way of the future, at least in Brussels.
