Garrett and Jason’s business is electronic magic-making. So when they built a New Year’s Eve sparkleball, of course it contained six RGB LED arrays (capable of intense light and color combinations) and several kinds of controllers. Lowered by a rope from a tree at midnight, it lit up the whole backyard. And a few years later, they made their ball-drop even more spectacular.
Carl Boro’s giant sparkleball is the annual centerpiece of the New Year’s Eve Dance at Cubberley Pavilion. It is a feat of engineering constructed of 334 10oz hard Chinet cups, 700 led mini-lights, and suspended by a meticulous system of dacron fishing cord above the dance floor. When not performing, Carl’s NYE Ball rests in its own custom-made storage box.
But don’t worry. From my experience even just one ordinary sparkleball makes New Year’s Eve sparklier. Nothing goes better with champagne :)
