The PuppetBall project is a subsystem of the Keşif project. My job was to design and fabricate the spheres so that the inside could be observed without damaging the circuit and cutting off the color display. This required splitting the ball into hemispheres with each half containing its own circuitry. The most interesting part of this design is not in the 3D printed shells but rather the code that allowed the two sides to communicate and synchronize their color display.
