Strange rotational lighting project

A combination of a light bulb, a windmill and an ancient animation technology - the Zoetrope

Planned this for the new years party at redtail. The idea was to paste animation frames on the inside, then the rotation would create an animation.

We got a long way towards it, even buying bearings specifically to reduce friction (although some bearings a friend Sasha found in a roller-skate were better).

But they had plenty of stuff on there anyway - funky VJ projections and general coolness, like this completely wild LED array.
