interactive 3D spherical light displays

Come on, it got your attention.

It may induce some nostalgia mid-nineties carnival/techno gig but all that aside it still looks pretty awesome.

Here's a link to it's instructables page with a video of it in action.

I once planned to build a persistence-of-vision display like this. I should still have a sizable bag of RGB LEDs that I bought for it. The plan was to mount it on the front of a kick drum and have animated, color images displayed during a band performance. The hardest part is getting enough signal lines out to all of the LEDs while maintaining a sufficient switching speed. I might resurrect that project some day.
