Cool stuff, I know that in DX you can get a simple one of these. Do you have something to share with us?

OMC, freaking awesome rims!!

There should be a way to install these in an elegant way so they don't look too cheesy ;D ::)

I wonder how they get the power. Sure it cant be batteries, right??

Don't think so... not too sure if you can power that motor for a long time with a batt. (and LEDs!).

But well.. IDK, maybe they do use batts..

how can that compensate the speed changes? I mean it can't react that fast to a speed change the images are like statics >.>

The earth is always orbiting around the sun so if you travel forward or backwards through time, the earth wouldn't be in the same spot ever. Moving exactly ONE year wouldn't work either because the entire Solar system is moving through space.

The board has a optical sensor that resets at every revolution and calculates the speed me thinks. You can see it in the third vid Niko posted, two black upstanding rectangles facing each other.

Nice, nice. The real question is: How much will I be in debt to my bank after? ;)
I've heard of these around for a long time...but they cost an arm an a half, so i hear.

I was at a career fair recently and one company was handing out little fans with persistence of vision logos.

Todo: reverse engineer serial input protocol and replace the text with my own stuff.

LOL i made a POV gadget myself and posted the info and the source code at a spanish forum.
Gonna translate, but for you niko, here's the link:
http://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_fabricate-un-aerografo-nunca-mejor-dicho_783112

(in spanish from spain)


it's a gadget that displays letters when shaked in the air. Handheld, with two CR2032 batteries and some other cheap components. I can provide PCB artworks and all that stuff. And i'm gonna translate when i have time.


I attach the sourcecode, it's one of my first PIC proyects and you'll see that it's not very optimized... but works.

Hey, thanks for the link in spanish ;)

I remember we had one of those at school, you had to move it with your hand so you could view the text... then somebody made a motorized version of it :p




Buying list (prices in euros, to convert use google :))

-1 PIC16F628A (2,40-5[ch8364])
-18 pin socket (0,20[ch8364])
-7 high luminosity 5mm LEDs (preferably blue or green so you don't need to use resistors) (0,20-0,70[ch8364] each)
-2 battery holders (sorry, translated it as I could..) for button cells CR2032 (0,30 each plus the coin cell batts. at 0,50-2[ch8364] each)
-1 1K ohm resistor
-1 mini permanent switch
-1 piece of PCB


circuit scheme:

Ok, I translated this with google because I was too lazy to do it myself:


The most important issue is the source code with which we must set the PIC. It is written in PICBasic. Within the code file are instructions to add more phrases to the repertoire. I leave with you the attached file. Bas. To compile you must use a compiler PICBasic, as the PICBASIC. You can also use commercial software such as Microcode Studio (the latter is the one I use and is very very simple to use). The paste is that the program is worth a good money ... but if you "what you allow," "do with it."
Once compiled (in microcode pic16f628 just select from the list and make a button) you will file. Hex. This file you need in your program with a PIC programmer that may be the TE-20 or B-JDM (the JDM is not normal).




(If you don't wanna read it, it basically says you need to program the PIC controller with PICBasic).



finished project:

Oh well.. i think i'm gonna do some improvements to the source code with my current knowledge...

Thanks for translating niko, those are actually battery holders ;P
