Mobile POV device uses Parallax Propeller

Posted on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 in gadget, LEDs, Parallax Propeller by the machinegeek


Here’s a unique mobile POV device using the Parallax Propeller. Gareth (chiprobot) designed this gadget using the Propeller MCU driving eight UV LEDs, blasting UV light onto a phosphorescent sheet of vinyl. He says the coding utilizes the Propeller’s built-in ROM character map, so code size is very small (i.e., no big data tables). You can find code snippets and project data in his postings on the Parallax Propeller forum.
