So Let's get started.

In this instructable, I'll show you how I made a self powered rotating motor POV (Persistence of Vision) made from an old printer roller motor and rod.

The circuit is self powered that it need no batteries or external power source since the rotating motor is acting as a generator to illuminate the LED.

Supplies:

Step 1: ​Components:

That is all the you are going to use:

The old printer paper roller Motor connected to roller Rod.

or you can get the motor to work as a generator.

5mm Blue LED , Amazon , Aliexpress , eBay

Plastic Pipe, or any stick will do the job

Plastic Tape

Thread

Step 2: Actions

To prove the concept, I connected the LED directly to the motor wire and just rotated the rod to see if it produces enough power to light the LED.

As you can in the video, it worked just fine. Proof of Concept.

Let's Start to assemble our little gadget.

Step 3:

Now, you can try your new toy and enjoy.

Please take care not to hurt yourself or any other one around you when rotating your device.
