Remember 2003, when the internet was cool? Every good idea I've ever had, like wiring up a homebrew, programmable version of the Ambient Orb, was accomplished in 2003—and for less than $50, no less (presuming you already have your own PIC programmer). Too nerdly for me, I'm afraid, as I pay pasty patsies to do my cold Python thugging for me. Someone build me 100 of those and give me a mass discount.
