well, they've done it.



rgb (i.e can produce any colour you care to imagine), *fully* programmable (via usb pc link) aerotech equipment has arrived at last biggrin



anyone who saw the london juggling convention show (or was at the ejc earlier this year) will have been lucky enough to see owen and malte performing their classic 'spot the drop' routine with routine-programmed aerotech ultimate clubs ubblove



they already have plans for staff and poi with the same *individually controlled led technology* so that you have full control of programming the colour in each section of your toy.



here's the blurb from the aerotech website:



Written by: aerotech

Sequence 16 Million Colours with the new GLO-ULTIMATE equipment.



After three years of development and 100 times over budget, we bring you the ultimate in illuminated juggling equipment.



Our standard product range is designed for on the fly programming, so with a set sequence of taps it is possible to configure a product to change colour and flash between 2 Colours.



In our new ultimate range programming has been replaced with a reprogrammable RGB (The primary colours Red, Green, Blue) light sequencing program.



Each colour of the RGB is independently programmed to run a sequence of timed events to change intensity (brightness) levels. By altering the intensity levels of the RGB it is possible to select a colour from a palette of 16 Million different colours. Time increments are controllable down to 0.1 second meaning that it is possible to create a dazzling light show which can then be synchronized with other products.



A sequence is created using a simple line of code written within a standard text editor (Note book, Word etc). The file is then downloaded to the equipment using a standard USB 2.0 connection.



By using full powered USB hubs the glo-equipment fast charges from empty to 80% charged in 2 hours.

details of the sequencing language

example of some sequence code

a little techy information on the software used



i don't wanna know how much i have to save up for a set of clubs - if i start working on a 5 club routine now, by the time i can juggle it, i should have enough money saved to buy the clubs... wink

Hey Strugz, you have any idea if they're planning on building smaller doubles/triples sticks too? I'm even thinking for smaller staffs the weight issue wouldn't be even so much of a problem, when theyre not meant for contact stuff then a lighter weight model would probably be even easier to manipulate...

offtopic

Meg, an acro convention?

Where is this? It might be the same one that I might be at...

Maybe.

That looks pretty damned nice smile

Is the sequence coding the same as the one I played with in Bristol though, or has that been tweaked as well?

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Is it 140 for the pair or for each ball?

'12,150 mcd' im sure the white led lightstick from this site was 12000mcd, it didnt seem all that bright and definately not something i would pay 280 for.

*awaits hyperlights to come into production*
