uPOV persistence of vision with an accelerometer

in AVR, POV Toy by Ian | 1 comment

uPOV is a persistence of vision device with an accelerometer. This is the same concept we’re trying for with the USB POV Toy.

The problem I had with most of the current POV units is that they required skill to use effectively, timing your swings so that the message only goes in the one direction, appears in approximately the same spot, etc… So I decided to use an accelerometer in my design!

Check out a video after the break.

Thanks MichaelZ!
