Hi, this is Brandon Neustadter one of Elemental LED’s Commercial Account Managers.  I wanted to create a LED Light show that would sync to my music.  Generally this takes hours if not days or weeks, but with the Apollo Jammer it takes a matter of minutes. I didn't want just a light show though, I wanted to create some unique patterns on the wall and make it spin like a disco ball.  The hemp string ball makes beautiful patterns with the lights, but the spinning still needs some work.  Although I got the ball to spin the battery trains really quickly and you can't hang it from the ceiling because the wires get tangled.  I am working on version 2 any suggestions would be appreciated.

Step 1: Materials

5 feet of High Density RGB LED Strip
1 Apollo Jammer
10 feet of RGB Wire
9 volt motor
Heat Lamp Casing
Alligator Clip
Old headphone jack adapter
Duct Tape
Super Glue
Clear Drying Tacky Glue
300 Yards of 20lb Hemp String
Giant Bouncy Ball
What you need are <a href="http://adafruit.com/products/736" rel="nofollow">&quot;slip ring&quot; connectors</a> for the wires so it can spin.
Thanks for the tip! I'll give that a try.
