in 2016 I had my first request to do an LED-Diaboloshow. First I wanted to do it the normal way just with some LED-units in the Diabolos. Since you might know that I'm quite addicted to integrals, I thought it would be way cooler to have some LED-sticks, too. Due to the fact that there are just a few models which you can buy at the moment and that almost all of them are quite heavy, I thought of a way of building them by myself.
I had the idea during the EJC where I first saw and played the LED carbonsticks of sundia to just plug an LED-Unit at the end of my carbon sticks and suprsingly they work really well.
So what I basicly did I used these LED-Ball units from passepasse: http://www.passepasse.com/i-g-light-systeme-lumineux-inteligent-passepasse-avec-telecommande.html
removed the lid, shortend my Mister Babach carbon sticks and attached the led unit with a heat shrink tube. For a protection I just used some bubble wrap and wrapped it around the LED-unit.
For me the sticks work perfectly. They have a weight of only 34 g each. Despite I thought they are quite fragile, the LED-unit never broke althought I used them for several shows yet and they hit the ceiling or the ground or something else
And of course they have a really bright light with different colour options that you even can switch with a remote control by IR-light.
What brings me to my next point. The LED-units of passepasse for the diabolo and the balls which I used for my sticks are controlled by the same IR-remote system. So what I build next was a programmable remote for my LED-gear which can send the signals for the diabolos and the sticks by time. I'm sorry that I won't explain it in detail, as a hint if you want to rebuild it I did it with an Arduino microcontroller
If you want to have a look how it works in the show you can see here the trailer of my LED-show:
I think it is easy to rebuild the sticks, for the programming I want to say sorry that I won't share it with you in detail since it was quite a big project for me
If you're really interested you can contact me and I can maybe rebuild one for you!
I also wanted to insert images in the topic but I'm too stupid to do so...
maybe someone can tell me how to do
If you have questions feel free to ask
keep on playing!!
