One of the more impressive presentations of a gadget at a recent Maker Fair was a floor-mounted four-hoop device with LEDs along each hoop. The hoops were circular in shape as though they were the longitude lines on a globe. When the contraption was rotated and the LEDs driven under computer-based control, a 3D display appeared. The resolution was visibly low but at inventor shows, it is more the idea that counts than its immediate refinement.
