I got many requests from you to upload old content to this website because there are many dead links lying out there (e.g. here and here). The old content is gone because my old server crashed and didn’t want to start. After a couple of years though, the hard drive worked for 30 minutes. That was enough to restore my content.
I will put back here the projects I had done, and try to create some schematics too. I will create a proper http 301 redirect from the old URLs to the new URLs as well.
I while ago I build a hand-powered POV. Now it’s time to transform it to a more sophisticated Mobile POV!
Here is a short video to show you how the POV is working.
As you will probably notice, the camera refresh rate is much faster than me. This should not be a problem once the POV is on a fast enough motor.
NEW VERSION HERE.
This week I’ve been working on a POV. It’s my first microcontroller project ever and it has been very interesting. The microcontroller I used is an Atmel ATMEGA16 programmed with an Atmel AVR Dragon.
The next step is to make it turn arround on a motor and calibrate itself automaticly with help from a base-placed IR-diod. I have even talked with a local company that will hopefully provide me with a bluetooth module to make posible dynamic text change from mobile phone or any other bluetooth device.
For those who don’t know, POV stands for Persistence Of Vision.
Here are some pictures and the code:
