DIY Spinning LED Globe Build Log

at 8:39 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks

We recently saw this Rotating LED Globe that was built by Csaba Bleuer. Gleb left a comment with a link to 32 LED Spinning Globe that his friend Riko built. The site is in Russian but if you use Google Translator you will be able to see that is going on. The design is interesting, power is being delivered by a rotating coil, an ATTiny is the microcontroller and the PCB was made using the iron on method.

If you are interested in having a closer look at how it works Riko provides the schematic and source code on his site.

    Just yesterday, I was thinking about how to get power to a rotating pov display. I had concluded I could put a coil on the bottom of the spinning part and have it travel over permanant magnets from broken HDD’s. Or, thought I could mount an electric motor’s (as a generator) body on the spinning part and allow the shaft to be attached to the stationary base. This seems like a much better solution. I’m glad I saw this!

    How did he put the copper wires on the inside of the fan?
    What holds that together? Glue?

    Hello, I’m working through my school in a foster child out reach program with our robotics club and was wondering if you would be willing to help us out. Our group saw your Spinning LED-Ball (RGB) project and thought that this might be something cool for the kids to try. You would of course be given all due credit but we would like your help. What parts did you use and could you help us break it down into schematics or some sort of instruction set?
