Fine artistry by Chris Pontius
Designing, building, and inventing since I was a child, I was born with an insatiable curiosity about "how things work" . Thriving on innovation and pushing my talents beyond their limits, some say I can build or fix anything. Energized to create a working model of the Flat Earth in 2015, I used a dc toy motor and made some led's spin around a map using a cake cover for the dome sitting on a custom wood base.
They have evolved
I soon learned how to form my own Plexiglass domes and engineer a reliable mechanism to create the independent sun/moon movements. I was then able to etch the actual star pattern into a rotating dome to re-create the constellations we see. They light up well with plain white led's or colored with dynamic chase patterns. The under lights or "backwash lighting" creates a floating effect and can be programmed with buttons in the frame, a compact remote or the option of a Bluetooth/Android app for your smart phone.
New for 2019! "Handless" LED clock models. More videos on my YouTube channel
The craftsmanship and attention to detail define a remarkable work of art. It moves the room with subtle ambience.
" a fine piece of work"
Absolutely a pleasure to own such a wonderful way to show others how the Flat Earth concept can be a reality.
My model is proudly displayed for all to see. The rotating lights and dome are so fun to watch and see how our world really works.
