Amazing 3-axis LED orb Answered

Picture of

What's better than LEDs? Spinning LEDs! Laserpointer forums member FireMyLaser has decided that spinning LEDs is so much fun that he built a contraption that spins on 3 axes and creates some pretty insane effects. He also posted lots of build photos, but for now he's exceeded his photobucket bandwidth. Hopefully they'll be up again soon.

this system would be awesome if used to create holograms. the capabilities of this would look way better than any hologram used in sci-fi apart from the star trek ones

My first thought was "this would be the coolest light bulb ever".  But, I'm pretty sure that would destroy the energy efficient part of LEDs.  "Awesome" fails give this any justice.

Not as such. He has shots of the build, but they're still blocked for now.
