Hi guys!!! This is my first Instructable so if any make any mistakes just tell me. OK let’s get started!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
-solid core wire or ribbon cable
-9v battery snap
-6v motor (I got mine from a CD player)
-largish gear for your motor
-6 common ANODE RGB LEDs
-male header pins
-6v AA battery pack
-18 200 ohm resistors
So persistence of vision is just a fancy way of saying optical illusion. What it does is just flash LEDs so fast that your eyes are tricked into seeing things. I used Arduino's PWM to flash the lights and used a motor to turn it displaying a message.
I am not responsible for your stupidity and breaking things like people and vases because this project spins and stuff could fly off. Just use your brain and make sure everything is attached so you don't have and Arduino lodged in your gut.
Step 1: LED panel
First off we need to make the LED panel! start by getting your self some strip board 30-35 by 5-6 holes big. Now your going to want to sand of any rough edges I used a drill with a grinder for this. Then take a drill or drill press and make breaks the 3rd hole in all the way down the long side. Next, inspect your breaks for and shorts across you gaps.
