Katy Perry vs. Elmo

Nice music video of Katy Perry teaming up with Elmo from Sesame Street to sing "Hot and Cold".

Youtube snip:
Elmo and Katy Perry sing about opposites in "Hot and Cold" a spoof of her hit song as part of Sesame Street's 41st season.

Light Drive

Very cool video showing an Arduino-powered stepper motor controlling a set of light sources attached to a record player spinning to the tune of the Tron Legacy trailer.

Vimeo snip:
The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.

To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.

The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.
