Spinning LED Ball


This fun project makes awesome light effects by spinning LEDs on three axes. The maker, Carl, doesn’t exactly provide a how-to but he has tons of awesome pictures documenting the project. [Via Hacked Gadgets]

  1. The guy who made it says this was his hardest to build project yet. However, he also had videos of a two axis, three LED project and even a two axis, one LED project that both looked amazing.

  2. Simply wonderful. I would imagine that trying to get the thing balanced so it did not shake itself off the table would be a PITA.

  3. I’m very interesting in this project. I would love to build the same, but I’m not sure I’m able to…
    I didn’t find it in the link, but someone know all the materials needed to build this ?
