Gelstronic shared detailed instructions of how to build this 3D POV display, project instructables here:

In my project i use a spinning helix of LED strips. There are a total of 144 LEDs that can displays 17280 voxels with 16 colors. The voxels are arranged circularly in 12 levels. The LEDs are controlled by only one microcontroller. Because i have used the APA102 LEDs i need no additional drivers or transistors. So the electronic part is easier to build. Another advantage is the wireless electrical supply. You need no brushes and there is no friction loss.

Check out the video after the break.

  1. Oh, it’s the Princess Leia kind of holography… perhaps it should be ‘holography’ rather than holography, That aside, looks awesome. Two thumbs up!
    Also, it’s a rare Propeller project. Whew, I would find it difficult to open my wallet for 144 APA102, even if it’s for myself and I can well afford it…
