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 …..
So here it is! uPOV with a USB HID connection to modify the message!
So I continuously recived the question… “How do you change the message?” As I answered this many times before, I began to realize that my “you use an ISP programmer along with a bash script in linux” answer wasn’t going to cut it for most people. …..
I am working on a modified version of the uPOV hardware that uses the VUSB implementation for AVR microcontrollers to add USB capabilities so messages can be updated by someone without an ISP programmer…
Which leads me here…
I am currently thinking of 3 separate methods of going about this.
1. A CDC implemenation that basically creates a virtual com port …..
This time I am ready to give my source code, schematics, eagle brd files, even a script for uploading new messages!
BTW… uPOV stands for mirco Persistence of Vision.
Shots of the uPOV in it’s full glory!
So a little background…
I wanted to make a small fundraiser for my engineering department, and I thought this might be a …..
So I forgot to actually record during the pcb creation process, but I did manage to record it before etching… I promise to do it before my next board…
Two Videos. First is the PCB creation process, Second is a mini demo of what is to be the POV control board.
As well, sorry for the quality on the second …..
This is a project that I did a while back that I never really documented for some reason… Well here it is! the modified Epson PCB printer!
So I went to my local Futureshop (Canada FTW!) and picked up the only clearance Epson they had… No need to buy the extended warranty here!
After taking off all “Unnecessary” parts:
I removed …..
