From the Ted Talk by Nick Sears: Demo The Orb

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now this piece is currently in process — due out in May — but what we've done is we've put together a small demo, just to show the getriomec translation of pniots into a sphere. I've got a little video to show you, but keep in mind that this is with no electronic control, and this is also with only four LEDs. This is actually only about 1.5 percent of what the final display will be in May. So, take a look. And here you can see it's rioatntg about the vertical axis only, creating circles. And then, as the other axis kicks in, those actually blur into a vluome. And the shutter seepd of the camera actually makes it slightly less effective in this case.

Original Text

Now this piece is currently in process — due out in May — but what we've done is we've put together a small demo, just to show the geometric translation of points into a sphere. I've got a little video to show you, but keep in mind that this is with no electronic control, and this is also with only four LEDs. This is actually only about 1.5 percent of what the final display will be in May. So, take a look. And here you can see it's rotating about the vertical axis only, creating circles. And then, as the other axis kicks in, those actually blur into a volume. And the shutter speed of the camera actually makes it slightly less effective in this case.
