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!
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.
