Thingiverse citizen nrp, duplicator-of-keys, gesture-freestyle-printer, and Kinect-copier-of-people has uploaded another incredible design. This time he has created a spherical projector using OpenSCAD designed printed parts, a frosted globe, a pico projector, and some hardware. Nrp, like many others, has been inspired by Neal Stephenson’s cyberpunk classic “Snow Crash” as his inspiration for this project. 1 2 Nrp’s amazing write-up and description suggests there’s more than a little math involved in converting flat digital photos of the earth into a pico-projected-globe. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of series of upcoming blog posts detailing his work.
