Rotating LED Globe

at 9:50 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks, Insane Equipment


Our friend Csaba Bleuer sent in this crazy project he completed. It is a Rotating LED Globe which is being driven by a ATMega Microcontroller. The globe image was created using a program called BmpToAscii, with this program an image can be converted into Ascii. In this case the Ascii is used to display the globe! We have seen some other spinning LED globes in the past but this one by Csaba seems very smooth in operation. There is a hand drawn schematic below and if you are interested in digging deeper into the detail have a look at the code that Csaba was kind enough to share with us.
