Is this 4 days early? wink (posted 28th March)

if not 'tis tré cool. my only worry would be who would see the Led's on the fan blades? surely the fans have to stay horizontal to allow flight and therefore would point the led's up and down...

Sticking with original comment tongue2

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Malcolm, I actually hope this isn't an April Fool's joke.

No it was not an april fools joke. It is a concept idea that hopefully will come about in a few years.

In that case very impressive Malcolm. The timing was just just coincidental causing almost a double bluff smile

Would the rims of the fan blades be clear then? I don't see how you would get them vertical enough for the LED's to show, they could raise slightly but would need to be fairly flat to gain any altitude.

There's a kids hover-coptor-frisbee thing available at the moment with proximity sensors and no controller but when used appears to remain very flat and stable reducing the visible profile when looking side on. I could imagine something like this with a light on the top visible from all angles rather than the fan blades.

No matter what, I love the way tech is rolling forward from a ball on a string.
