IBM’s developer works show you how to make a “persistence of vision” device to spell words in the air with a Basic stamp… – “In this first article on microcontrollers, Erik Zoltan tells you what they are and how they work to your advantage. He presents a few simple examples illustrating how microcontrollers can be used, and gives you a complete implementation of a kinetic glowstick that uses persistence of vision to display images with a flashing row of LEDs.” – Link.

From the MAKE store:
The MiniPOV2 is a persistence-of-vision device that rapidly blinks 8 LEDs on and off so that when waved through the air, an image or message appears to float in front of the viewer.
This kit is an easy-to-build demonstration showing how microcontrollers work. It teaches:
- How to solder
- How to assemble simple kits
- How to program microcontrollers
The kit includes a Microcontroller, sockets, resistors, LEDs, connectors, a battery case and a printed circuit board. Add some basic tools, a PC with a parallel port, and a little programming, and the MiniPOV is ready to blink out your deepest thoughts.
