Hello Friends,

I just passed a milestone in my recent Spoke POV Project:


POV == Persistence of Vision.

2 weeks ago I received a kit from Adafruit industries [1] for a kit of
components for 3 Spoke POV systems. With help and tools from the
Vancouver Hack Space [2] I built the 3 boards last week and then got
the software working tonight. I was able to take .bmp images and
flash them down to my boards. The boards are securely zap-strapped to
my spokes with a magnet on my front fork.

I would like to start a project for VHS to create some low-cost kits
for people to make their own Spoke POV systems and then to make a
night out of it where we build and share knowledge about these
systems. I'll make sure to post here when this starts to come together.
