it started with the thought of how to create a simple unpredictable electronic device.
its so simple its embarrassing
once you start playing around with it, you just cant stop
Step 1: What Do You Need ?
1.A bunch of LED's - there is no right amount - it works with 1, starts to look cool around 15 and just gets cooler as you add more. here i used 150 of the cheapest LED's i could find.
2. A 3v battery - one is enough but once i had all these LED's i felt like adding an extra 2nd battery.
3. A transparent sphere - i used those u can get in ant hobby store that are made of two parts, the come in many sizes and are quite cheap and handy.
Step 2: Prepping the LED's
take all the LED's and bend open their 'legs' just a bit.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Put the LED's in the sphere
Add the 3v battery (or two)
and there you have it !
Step 4: Ready - Set - Go !
its magical !
the next logical thing to do was to kick the ball around...
Step 5: Enjoy
just glue it or something before you really get crazy with the kicking...
