Pi Zero Persistence of Vision Machine Mounted to CD atop Spinning PC Fan @Raspberry_Pi #piday #PiZero
This is a great project and blog by Garage Tech – I especially dig the comic book-like speech bubbles and text overlays. And I dig any project that takes advantage of building upon the remnants of detritus technology like a CD labeled ‘Antivirus 05/16’!
In this article we are going to show you how to build a Raspberry Pi Zero POV setup to display text from a file using an LED bar. The fun part is that the Pi and all the rest of the hardware are spinning glued onto a PC fan to deliver a fantastic POV effect whilst remaining wirelessly connected to your network!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
