DIY Doggy Style Persistence of Vision!

POV or Persistence of Vision where you use flashing LED lights to display letters in motion, has always been a fun way to learn about LEDs and circuits.   You might remember I invented the world’s first Golf club POV, which was capable of showing letters/images while you swing the golf club.

Well, there’s a DIY Doggy Style (literally doggy dog) POV someone has managed to put together with his furry little helper helping him in pitch darkness.

Mounting 5 LEDs on a moving o

The first motor had the rotary encoder attached, so I left
