povshoesm.jpgThere’s quite a bit of POV (Persistence of vision) projects lately. Most POV projects are a series of LEDs (lights) blinking and when moved produce a word- it’s the same “hack” when you play 30 frames a second to see a movie. A couple years ago I made a pair of shoes that spelled “NIKE” when you run (View image) and when I get time, they’ll display speed too. If you’re interested in the POV “movement” here are a few great examples to get started. Drewish’s 2-sided pov toy, Lady Ada’s minipov and Make pal EverythingDigital’s recent posts using off the shelf parts.

    Whoops. That was supposed to be under the Future Horizons area. Maybe if we could edit our postings, it would improve communications a bit.
