After 7 years of developing the perfect orb tool, here it is, the official Ball of Light Tool. This has been a labor of love for me. A product I wanted to be insanely reliable, strong and adjustable. I have hand made this tool from scratch from only the best components and have thrashed many of them to be sure it is just that.
If you have ever built your own orb tool you will know how difficult it is to achieve reliability. Over the years I have experimented with so many variations to achieve a cable grip design that if used correctly (you must follow the clear instructional video) will last you hundreds, if not thousands of spins.
The head (the unit with the LED’s in it) is quickly and easily changeable, so you can have an array of colours in your bag and only one cable and controller. These heads are incredible strong. We have tried hard to destroy one of these with no luck. You can even break off an LED and the remainder will still function! Please note: The tool includes two different coloured heads as pictured below, and a wide variety of colours are available to add to your collection.
The controller is extremely robust and is designed to offer full control in the brightness of the head. If you are in the dark and your aperture is wide open you can dim the head. Out in a brightly lit street you can increase the brightness to suit.
I know The Ball of Light Tool will not be attainable for everyone. I have worked incredibly hard to refine the build process to get keep the cost as low as possible. This is an investment that will bring a new level of awesomeness to your light painting!
