If you haven’t started decorating your home’s exterior for the holidays, you might want to take this year off. Climbing ladders and untangling lights is often a maddening experience. But a new technology trend this year uses lasers instead of lights and might be a better option for last minute decor.

Here to tell us more about this new way to spread cheer is Omar Gallaga of the Austin American-Statesman’s 512 Tech.

“There is one really easy option you could do that doesn’t require a ladder or stringing the lights…this holiday’s top lighting trend is the holiday projector which you’ve probably started seeing around neighborhoods,” he says.

You can pick up some of these laser projectors at your local Walgreens.

“It really is just a laser projection that creates effects like snowflakes or falling snow,” he says. “There’s a variety of them – they start at about $28.”
