    Hey guys,
    So I have finally finished my first Pixel Ball,

    [​IMG] (in progress here)

    https://youtu.be/Bf22deG9TQ0 (sorry for the vertical video, lol)
    The video shows just a little of what it can do, its very bright, and looks amazing, I have used 20 Pixels (2 x 1m Pixel Strips) in this one, going to play around a little bit more later on with my others to see what other ideas I can come up with, I love the look of when it looks like it is rolling,
    But for now this one is going to go home with someone at the 2016 Sydney Mini as a complete item, Ball & Pixels.

    its about 550mm side to side, so its not small...
    It was a lucky find, they are old Carpark Lights, I have removed all the original Light Fitting inside and made 2 straps for the LED strips to go on,
    Its like a Plastic, but feels a little flexible, so not 100% sure what the material is, but lets the light through nicely.

    Cool... Maybe like a yard lamp globe, the old 70's style. I'm now on a hunt... I like this better than a star! Thanks for sharing!

    Got any photos of the guts that you made?

    CLAP? (Hoping it has a different meaning over there.)
