The Tannenboing: A Different Kind of Christmas Tree

For those tired of traditional Christmas trees—their prickly needles, their tiresome ornaments, their limited lifespans—there's another way! The Tannenboing, which bills itself as the "modern, sustainable" Christmas tree, is low on upkeep and high on surreal futuristic style.

So what exactly is your new tree? A brushed aluminum spiral that extends to a height of six feet when suspended from the ceiling. It can hold up to 250 ornamental items weighing up to 20 pounds around its curving track, and it will either have the effect of making it look like you have a whole whole lot of presents under your tree or not really very many at all, I haven't quite been able to figure out.

I wouldn´t afford it, but you can´t say it isn´t original =P

It looks pretty cool but where else can you get it besides online?

Also, isn't it rather pricey?

We use a fake tree at my place. I don't like this tree all that much though, it needs to look more.. Tree like.

I used to build crap like this with my hotwheels when I was a kid. I wish I had known I could have sold it for ridiculous amounts of money.
