RGB POV Display

RGB POV Display

I sure hope Nintendo doesn’t sue…

There are 64 RGB LEDs spinning around on an aluminum frame, spun by a motor picked up at Princess Auto for $20.

I control everything via an ATMEGA1284p microcontroller, as it was one of the only micros that had the memory space I needed for images.

I hope to get some more color out of the system …..

7 channel, 1 bus modular pcb audio selector project

(the modeling shot)

Basically, an idea is to allows up to 7 devices, in this case (inputs or outputs, don’t matter), to be plugged in and to have them criss-cross connected across ‘busses’, to route the audio signal inputs to desired outputs. The goal is to have a remote, pc, or manual over-ride controlled source/destination bussed audio selector matrix.

Say, you have …..

I finally got around to trying to see how the thing would go along. I needed to figure out how to mount the leds, to shine into the piramid spikes.

The ‘structure’, or as I’ll refere to it as ‘the orb’, is intended to hold a candle on the inside, and provide illumination.

Ofcourse, I like electronics, and LEDs, so when …..
