“My finished gloglobe uses a 3″ styrofoam ball as the outer casing. The electronics shown below as well as a small battery are shoved up into the ball. It turns out that a Sharpie makes the right size whole for the globe assembly to fit into and the styrofoam does an amazing job of mixing the colors into a uniform glow. This project has been moved to the attiny26 AVR and the code has been rewritten in C. I have made the move to AVRs for better linux support.” [via] Source code and more here – Link.

    That’s some cool stuff. It seems the link isn’t working to show how you made the light, or am I doing something wrong? Let me know?
