Touch-sensitive spherical LED display

Ommatid is a spherical display with 76 elements. Each is illuminated with an RGB LED and has an IR proximity sensor making the entire sphere touch-sensitive. I built the enclosure using multimaterial 3D printing as well as conventional wooodworking. The interior of the globe containes 19 custom circuit boards specially programmed to provide interactivity. This work was done during my residency at Autodesk Pier 9
