Cheap is good. And works.

After ordering a moulded 200mm sphere and putting it into a cup made out of a 250mm hollow half sphere, it seems  like we've got a working spherical treadmill. Before I post a brief video of the result, some credit must be given out:

Patrick Spooner - for lots of useful advice and help
The lady of Graham Sweet Studios - for suggesting that 250mm hollow half spheres might be the right size for the cup

This is the result:

The next few things on my to-do list for the setup are:
- set up the optical mice so that they track the movement of the ball
- set up mirror and screen for the virtual reality
- program the virtual reality environment
