POV Cylinder with Arduino Due

Introduction This is my first Arduino project. My work was inspired by several maker projects that created Persistence of Vision Displays [2,3,4]. Persistence of vision (POV) refers to the optical illusion whereby multiple discrete images blend into a single image in the human mind and believed to be the explanation for motion perception in cinema and animated films [1]. The projects [2,3,4] implement POV g ...

LED Cylinder using Arduino

This is a little art project I made with 95 RGB LEDs arranged in a 3D cylinder shape, sitting atop a microcontroller-based driver circuit. The LEDs are individually addressable, and when you power it on, the software cycles through a series of animations, e.g. various moving rainbowy patterns, "rain", "fireworks", and so on. It doesn't serve much of a purpose but it is kind of cool to look at. The hardware ...
