Jolly

'Tis the season to be jolly. But how do you know when you are? Meet Jölly, the wearable Santa beard jolliness tracker. Utilizing adhesive electrodes, JöLLY monitors expressions and tracks them on the JöLLY mobile app. Users can see their smile metrics appear in real time, informing and encouraging their merriness goals for the season and jolliness resolutions for the new year.

Wee Pee Tree
Dogs have a strong appreciation for Christmas trees. To steer that appreciation in a more festive direction, the Wee Pee Tree would play music and dispense a treat when peed upon. This would reduce the amount of canine urine on the family tree, before and after the big day (our sanitation workers deserve pee-free trees).

Snowden Globe
It's a flurry — a flurry of leaked documents. Every time you shake your phone with the Snowden Globe app open, tiny papers flutter about the Kremlin, finally bubbling up a link to an actual leaked document.

Roaming Mistletoe
Mistletoe is festive, but no one decorates with it anymore because kissing someone carries a lot of weight. Expectations, awkwardness. The solution? A fleet of mistletoe delivery men and women available to show up, kiss you under the mistletoe and never be seen again. Think of it as the Uber of making out.

Streaming Bells
Hundreds of bells, wired to a central Arduino, streaming live. Each viewer will be assigned a specific bell, and every time they "heart" the feed, their bell will ring, resulting in a responsive, live-streaming global bell choir.

The Ugly Tree
It's a facial-recognition brooch that collects grimace data of onlookers, quantifying how ugly the sweater it's pinned to is. Now, ugly sweater parties have an impartial judge.
