I am sorry, but I don't have any other photos, and to tell much about it now it would take too long.

... it wasn't designed as an Instructables, was just a project for school.

I
replaced the platter from an old HDD with a small PCB. It has some SMD
LEDs, a microcontroller PIC16F876A and a Hall sensor that counts the
number of rotations. Depending on this I adjust the display of each
rotation. That's all ...

Looks nice, but it's not nice to share something as cool as this and not share in some detail how you made it. I'm sure you were so proud of this project that you still kept the schematics, notes, etc. Did you not?

Can i have a schematic and pcb circuit? And part list too if you don't mind

Hi, we are interested in using your idea as a project in the electronics department of our school. Is there any chance you could write some kind of instructions on how this project was made and possibly the code used.
Thanks.

How can I see the circuit diagram? I am interested in putting together this project ..
And I was like that. But I'm in Thailand. Which is interesting enough for me to begin to develop guidelines or Pattern for me to guide me.

through a kind of brushes on the rotor. :D
