mad mouse, poi and firebreathing
7.5mb .wmv

This is the guy who introduced me to poi many moons ago. Nice picks, it was a cool night. I'm working on th main video of the night aswell, but I've got such a huge amount of footage, it's gonna take me a while.

Posted:@WOFT: there aren't any "regular" meets, per se... someone just suggests a gathering on the forum and then people rock up whenever they can.
To find the spinners at central station, you'll see them either spinning with sock poi, or a group of people standing together looking chilled. Anonomatos usually has a fluffy red bag with all his poi goodies in - it's a great marker.

@mot: STUNNING video... wow....

Posted:EEP! Bra-q, cool piccies.... now post some of other people pulling silly faces smile

WOFT, if you can't make it tomorrow, Fuero lives in Rotterdam, so maybe you guys can meet up at least - and if Fuero's going tomorrow he can escort you.... Fuero? And if not, follow the smell of lamp oil at the Station smile Staffs tend to be a giveaway as well....

I'll try to be there tomorrow, but need to get some work done first, not sure if I'll make it on time... frown

Posted:yeah, poi star is right... tomorrow you can recognize us by a bunch of crazy people, part insane, part pagan (= insane :P) and the rest isn't that normal either. In front of a'dam central station (that is the very, very begginning of the Damrak street)...

hope to see some hoppers tomorrow 13h smile

(MIND THE NS! LOT's of work on the railways, lot's of delays!!!)

If you don't recognise me, look for the crappy wooden staaf, with lights on each end.

I walked around for 2 1/2 hours yesterday in vondelpark and didn't see anyone ANYWHERE.... were the trains late?
Was the meet somewhere other than vondelpark? I did ask... wish somebody had told me...

Next sunday (3rd of july): Poi meeting in amsterdam, collect 13:00h in front of a'dam centraal!



That's all I saw on the forum... and *hangs head in shame* about not finding your number again... *sigh* my bad.
perhaps it just wasn't meant to be. there was a baton juggler at vondelpark though and I think he was juggling 6 or 8 batons... it was very cool to watch smile

btw... when is next time? wink

Posted:Heya all! How is everybody doing?!

me fine, just been to Rock Werchter, which rocked ofcourse ^.^

Anyhow, I'm going to groningen today, untill the 14th, so I am unavailable to meetings unless they are in Groningen! I've talked with Marc, and there is probably going to be a meeting there with Carobananas, Tony Girl, Marc, and I'm hoping for Brak ;-) and Ezeeckiel to stop by as well ubbangel

And when I come back I might make it to amsterdam WOFT, but I will mail again as soon as I get back (and you can reach me through Fuero by phone)

Posted:as far as I know there's at least 1 person here interested in my the progress of my project.



I call it 'PluX' (programmable light unit X). It's a ledpoi (I only have 1 so far, and still very sloppy constructed though), running on 3x AAA batteries to power 3 leds (these leds are Luxeon leds and are VERY bright)... one red, one green and one blue led.



Now the funny part: it's fully programmable due a PIC-microchip. This basically means I can program ANYTHING i want... strobes, fades, rainbow-color-changes, you name it.



Here it is, the first Dutch programmable Luxeon poi!

next thing to do is to assemble and solder the Pic-programmer... then i only need to get a crash-course in assembly or some other program-language :P but it just takes some time... the hardware is fully working.. that's a good start!
