    I think it could be cool to make a ball, by shaping the flexible circuit like the old globe maps that has been flattened with long curved triangles in top and bottom (I don’t know the exact name of that type of maps). When folded up it creates a complete sphere and all the “north pole” tips could be connected with a screw or similar going to + on a AA or similar battery, the “south pole” tips could connect up to - on the battery.

    With a controller (Arduino, small ARM or similar), some sensors (e.g. an accelerometer) and a slew of individually adressable LEDs + maybe a buzzer, you would have a fun toy that could light up based on motion or position, maybe with animations as part of games. With a wireless module multiple balls could be part of a single game.

No public wish lists :(
