Tron: “Light Drive” Stop Motion Record Player Laser Light Show

Kim Pimmel created this stunning audio-visual trip, Light Drive, on an old turntable with light painting techniques, stop-motion, and mashed-up audio from Tron Legacy trailers. (via Matt Moore)

Way sexier than Tron Kama Sutra.

Here’s how Kim, UX designer at Adobe (go figure) did it:

The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.

To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing.

The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more .”
