animated pacman spokepov

This is the first animated gif i’ve made…its pretty simple yet took a bit of tweaking in photoshop to make the two images line up correctly despite using a tripod.

The technology here is ‘persistence of vision‘…when LEDs move fast enough they can ‘draw’ an image onto the retina when the wheel spins. That’s the basis behind both the MiniPOV and SpokePOV (shown here) toys that I designed last year.

I rode this design around last Burning Man. Of course, I’ve adjusted the pictures so they’re ‘upside down’ here for better photographing!
