This is a slow shutter speed based video recording of a Digital POI persistence of vision display.

This is a video of an LED based Persistence of Vision device I created that writes words or patterns as it is spun at night.

It works like POI Spinning but with Digital LEDs in-place of flames. It was created using a Microchip PIC microcontroller and a small circuit board.

The Digital Poi Spinning device can write text, draw small icons, and display patterns as you spin it around. It works by encoding your visual data onto a series of 8 LEDs that are spun in a circle quickly like traditional a fire spinning POI.

This experiment was posted as a downloadable project on the MikroElektonika LibStock website.
