The Blinky POV reprogrammable LED kit uses persistence of vision to create the illusion of text or a small picture floating in the air. Blinky POV is a standalone product and includes a pre-programmed microcontroller.

 

This version allows you to change the text or picture by going to a website and simply holding the Blinky POV up to your monitor. Two squares on the web page blink to transmit the new message or animation to the Blinky POV microcontroller.

 

Really - It's that easy. 

 

Blinky POV require no special cables or knowledge of programming. Go to the Blinky Programmer website, enter in your text and animations, and hold your Blinky up to the screen. Click the Go button on the page, and the squares start to blink, transmitting the data to the Blinky POV. Easy Peasy.

 

The Blinky POV usually takes between 20 minutes and an hour to assemble. Soldering isn’t hard–there’s even a 10 page comic to help show anyone how to solder. 

 

Blinky POV requires 2 AA batteries for use, and assembly requires a soldering iron and solder, a diagonal cutters, and optionally, a hot glue gun and wire strippers. Your choice of red or blue LEDs.
