Looks like a UFO

One night at a drum circle in Toronto I was met some girls who let me try out their hoops and introduced me to a great idea. They had converted their simple home made hoops into fancy LED hoops by taping cheap glow sticks around the circumference. We span in the dark, creating impressive neon rainbows.

The next day I went to Dollarama and bought a variety of glow sticks to bring back to TT with me.

About two nights ago, I stuck two of the glow sticks on a hoop and my nephew and I turned off the lights and tested it out. The above photo shows him giving it a spin.

Very cool. I've been thinking about playing with LEDs in pictures, but haven't gotten around to it!
