RGB LED POV Globe - Research other peoples projects.Mar 24, 2011 Edit
There are a lot of different POV projects out there that have influenced my project.
n00tron 3D volumetric spherical display - interactive exhibit This is an interesting project. Instead of putting the LEDs on the outside of the ring they put them on the spokes of a bicycle rim. Then they spin the bicycle rim on 2 axes simultaneously creating a 3-dimensional Volumetric display. The display is pretty random but still really interesting to look at. What I like about this project is that they used a bicycle rim as their spinning center ring. I’m having problems sourcing a 6foot ring to use in the center of my project and if I end up scaling down the project I probably will use a bicycle rim like they do.
POV Globe I really like the mechanics of their set up, and they go thou the project set by set explaining all the problems that they had in the build as well.
I also like things to be interactive, I want people to be able to play and change them I make while it is in motion. I have been looking at different steampunk and cyber punk interfaces for ideas on the visual aesthetic of a control panel. I also been looking at different DMX lighting controller to get an ideas on different settings that I could make available to the user to play with. Brass plates, big nobes, buttons, switches, sliders, gates, and other tactile feed back devices.
