2010 New Year's ball

2010 New Year's ball

It's been a while since my last post...we've been really busy with some projects the past few months. However, on New Year's Eve I took a couple hours to build a miniature version of the Times Square ball. I did something similar last year, with 32 ShiftBrites and a geometric drinking straw construction. This year I used a lot of plastic cups glued into a sphere, and six Satellite Modules controlled by ShiftBars and an Arduino.

There are some more photos and a video available on the 2010 New Year's ball Flickr set.
