POV based Magic ball

In this project, the user can ask the ball a yes/no based question and the ball will display the answer in form of a sphere which is achieved using persistence of vision. The sphere display has been created by spinning semi-circle shaped LEDs around a central motor shaft. The rotational speed of the LED’s is fast enough such that the human eye perceives a two dimensional image. The software part of the project basically calculates the refresh rates of the LED so it seems like a 2D figure. There are 19 LEDs consisting of the semi-circle and the entire display area is mapped to a 19 by 90 matrix where each element in the matrix represents a pixel. The device is powered by a ATMEGA128p connected to Led subsystem and… Continue reading
