Unfortunately, the SpokePOV is only one colour, and the m132s, as I understand, doesn’t have the ability to display images. Besides, I think these are a little too expensive for something that I will not use often.
So I though I would try to make my own with components I already had around. This way I don’t have to spend any more money to try and play with a bicycle POV.
This project features:
16 RGB (Red+Green+Blue) Light Emitting Diodes;
Arduino compatibility (Suposedely, I’ll have to check that later);
Single layer printed circuit board, suitable for home fab;
All through hole componentes, suitable for beginners;
Hall effect sensor, for image synchronization;
Least number of componentes possible;
Unfortunately, only one side of the wheel is illuminated (check update).
Fits 26″ wheels, I haven’t had opportunity to try it in 20″ and 24″ wheels.
This project is also a open project. Anyone who wishes to participate is welcome. The contributions will be added to this instructable and published.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
