lightscythe small Light Scythe Makes Huge Light Paintings

Gavin from Sydney built this 2-meter POV staff for full color light painting.

The hardware is pretty simple. There’s a 2m programmable LED strip inside an acrylic tube, which is controlled from a small receiver and battery pack. A laptop PC with a wireless Xbee link sends the image data to the scythe at a specified time.
