Yes, yes, Borg cube. You've seen it before. I posted it before. But the WIP blog entry will illuminate the difference.

Have my subtle cues shed light on what is going on with this one?

An interesting construct.

Guy Mann-Dude has been assimilated into our playlists.
I almost expected to see one side of the cube as a tic-tac-toe pattern.

Good work all around!

Could you have glued the el wires down, to get less slack?

I could have and I still could. I am considering it. El wire is used a lot for automotive applications (pimp my ride), and normal industrial adhesives will work on it. The outer coat is a highly polar plastic that won't bond well with PVA (cow glue) or CA (super glue).

The other thing I can do is to pinch the wires at the joints to make them lay flat. The plastic will deform and hold shape. While I have el wire projects that are over a decade old, I am irrationally concerned about it burning out and me having to entirely destroy a project to remove it. I'm much more comfortable with hidden copper wires. and rewiring that.

Well I always suspected you had a part in scenes like this…
