After more than a year of off and on development, there’s finally a working firmware for the USB Persistence of Vision Toy. With a bit more tweaking we’ll be ready to release the code. This week’s workshop video is an overview of the POV Toy project.
- Displays pattern or words when waved in the air
- USB interface for pattern uploads, firmware updates
- Accelerometer tracks hand motion to sync display
- See the prototype history
We also break out the updated POV Toy PCB. It’s shaped to be easy to hold, and includes a LiPO batter charger. Prototype PCBs are available in the free PCB drawer.
