    this ball is almost perfect cause it gives unified light but unfortunately it is a bit dark.
    you can still use it by making exposure of kinect bigger (either manually kinect 360 or by parameter for One). Or make a manually lower range of Value component of HSV filter. Unfortunately automatic calibration will not work and you must enter range for HSV manually (not that hard). I might do something to address it like option to make lower colour threshold or simply find brightest without any threshold.
    Both options in circle.

    Like said, it will be no perfect because brightness is very average compared to other elements at home and ps move would be ideal.
    Honestly I spent days on looking for perfect bulb out of the shelf šŸ™‚
    If you or anyone find something cool then please post here.

    anyway I ordered like 10 pieces to give around and everyone loves it šŸ™‚

    Maybe this could work? At least if you put it inside a ping-pong ball.

    problem with last one is that it is not a ball. so view will be limited.
    the previous link I have actually at home and I think alone it was working not so well. i will try with pingpong – if I find one before xmas šŸ™‚

    Hi!

    Want to share my experience.

    Bought this one:
    https://koka-shop.de/usb-led-gluehbirne.html

    -cut the acrylglass to see whats inside.
    -cut a ping-pong ball. I needed a round piece to change the color from white to magenta.
    -I took 2 round pieces and put it one around the other. With one piece, the light was “too white”. 2 pieces made it darker, but more colorful.
    -glued it all together.
    -powered with a battery pack.

    Works very good!
