Build this unique, cool interactive free-standing LED Sphere with multiple sensors that can be used to provide a fun platform for further development - interaction, lighting or games.
The unit is 3D printed and uses an Arduino Nano, Gyro Board, Audio Mic sensors controlling 130 independently controlled colored LEDs. There are two buttons for adding effects and menus for this unique gadget - the possibilities for effects can be endless.
The build information can be found on Instructables here https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Gyro-Sphere-Arduino/
A video clip of it in action can be seen here https://youtu.be/zW8bWbHkKJ4
The current code provided uses the Gyro output to change the color based on the rotation or attitude of the sphere which gives a unique effect as seen in the Youtube clip. I am progressively releasing example effects over the next few days that can be accessed through menus and displayed on the LED Gyro Sphere.
The Sphere is 110mm in diameter with a wall thickness of approx 3mm using Black PLA filament. There are 130 LEDs to connect within the unit so it was more practical to print the unit in four components to make it easier to access the inside of the sphere with a soldering iron.
I used a Robo C2 printer which performed well for the print. By splitting the build into 4 units and printing two small pieces at the same time reduces the print time significantly.
I have numbered the 4 individual items to print 1 - 4 and provided them as STL files.
