DA/VE (insect eye visor)

I like the DA/VE (insect eye visor) by Nikita Pashenkov

da/ve was my first electronics project at the media lab. The starting idea was an image of an insect eye made out of disrete leds. The addition of fiberoptic elements transformed the display surface into a rudimentary visual matrix, which was recorded by camera and analyzed in computer software. At some point in 2001 da/ve was accessible on the internet via a network-enabled microprocessor module

Why do I blog this? I like the appearance of the device (and the internet-enabled controller).
