And needless to say, you delivered! There are some sensational ideas out there in the Connecting Santa to the IoT section, all of which will be included in this year's letter to the North Pole.
But only five of these wonderful wintry whatevers could win their parts list, and we're hugely excited to see them being brought to life by Santa's honorary elves. Let's take a look at the winning entries, selected on their originality, innovation and sheer entertainment value.
Congratulations to all our winners, and everyone who bagged the IoT of Santa badge at the end of last year. Remember to keep us all posted on how your projects are taking shape once your parts list arrives down the chimney!
