for your ugly sweater party

This sweater uses your iPhone {smart phone / iTouch / whatever} to create the fireplace animation in your ugly sweater fireplace. Brilliant!

To get the crackly fire for your fireplace, there's an app you download to your phone. With the app running, set the phone into its little window in the sweater, and voila! Best. Ugly Sweater. Ever.
