Mike,

That big black one is very cool. The pic doesn't do it any justice. That was probably my favorite one.

Alex is very good at his crafts!!

They are very cool... there is such an art to doing origami. About as close as I get is the occasional paper airplane.

Very cool! Great work Alex! I'd like to see a how that would look if you could put a small red LED at the base of the fibers coming from the Dragons mouth. Make him really breathe fire!! :D

I did just that very thing, with a high intensity LED, you could not see the light unless you looked straight at the ends of the fiber cables, my cables are for prod sensing , so it may not be the correct stuff, I've seen fibers that the light is seen thru the sides, but I dont have this stuff.
but a good idea anyways..... :D :D :D :D :D

Yeah, but don't tell anybody that...they may get the wrong impression. :-s
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
