You get props for using parts from a CD-ROM and excessive amounts of hot glue. In the picture, it looks like the ball is spinning really fast, is it? How does it look at that speed?

its dosent spin as fast as it looks in that picture i had the camera on a long shutter speed so you could see the LEDs beter. And thanks everyone for the comments. Hot glue works wonders to keep wires in their place.
