Visual effects are often used in movies and some can be visualized using the stop motion technique. The pictures are put together which at the end constructs a movie. By using a turntable and controlled step motors that are connected to an Arduino these cool affects are created.
The lights are regulated by changing the speed of the step motors. The speed regulation is done in Processing using Bluetooth communication. The different light sources, that are used in this case, makes it possible to create different kind shapes and forms.
The nice effects that are created were the first thing that really made me like this video. Though, after a while I was more impressed over the fact that you don´t need much technical equipment to create these effects.
