K'nex combined with LED's to create awsome Orbs.

I think this is a great example of the neverending potential of knex.

This photographer set about making rotating led lit orbs. He then used a long exposure on his camera to create the amazing pictures you see here.

I think for a simple building method, for a non permanent project, knex is one of the best options, and greatly under appreciated!

I could actually see this working, Knex recently brought out a Knex Light up rod(see the picture), so add it a motor and a few more light up rods, boom boom pow, you got a light orb. Or you could use LEDs...

And yet some people Hate K'nex so much that they write a script to block it... :/
i definetly feel sorry for them, knex could be even used to build houses, just no one to do it
I'm not sure about the house thing though...
give me $4000 to buy knex and ill make one, i did a scale model, and i threw it down 4 storeys into cement and survived, i shot it with a real gun and it halfway shot through one wall, thats how sturdy i can make it
Do you mean you made a Knex scale model of a house?
Come on, What did you make it out of, Diamond k'nex?
K'nex, PUre K'nex, i just did a weave like pattern, and it rubs the bullet causing the bullet to actually "meld" into the wall
