Venti-POV – LED Poi

Po Ting made some awesome LED-POV poi that has some really impressive image rendering.

This design includes 80 pixels and a touch-sense pad to act a control button.  It takes advantage of the high performance features of the Teensy 3.6 to achieve high frame rate that allows for really detailed images as the LEDs move.

A couple of years before this project, Po Ting didn’t have any experience with Arduino or using micro controllers.  Through trial and error as well as a lot of community support, he was able to create this incredible LED project.  Some of the projects and libraries that really helped on the journey were Mortonkopf’s POV Project, the FastLED library,  KurtE’s DMA-SPI library, and Duff’s Snooze Library.
