    Was in a reject shop today, and they had the Solar balls on shelf.... well they did. Still $2.00, get them while you can they are a seasonal item.

    I got another 6 the other day. Those 42mm RGB pixels fit straight onto the existing screw mounts.

    Hi Daniel, I just looked up the reject shop website to see what the balls where but couldnt find any..... Could you please post a pic so I can see how you would use one in your show?

    Thanks

    They showed up on their web site only the other day (can't find them now), so maybe stock has almost run out?

    Getting pixel nodes to sit nicely in the centre could be fiddly. The 42mm modules sit in the base and illuminate the ball quite evenly.

    If you get the right led module you don't even need the disc, it fits straight onto the existing screw holes

    The rings are nice, but they are bright enough with one pixel. I use the single pixel with milk cover inside the ball. I found I get hot spots otherwise.
