Here is a different way to do a POV with a fan

Instead of the fan being part of the POV, the author uses the fan as a turntable for the LED’s. Building a POV Display On A PC Fan original site https://www.shortn0tes.com/2018/04/ws2811-pov-display-on-pc-fan.html

Make a seed spreader

OK this was just too much to resist, the author build a salt spreader with a cheap leaf blower and a motor to “spin” and separate out the salt.  It also works to spread grass seed.  The authors are using … Continue reading
