The idea is to make some kind of POV-ball with the ability to do interesting animations.
The hardware platform is built and functional with a few minor modifications necessary for wire pathing. The LEDs fit reliably in the sockets with some minor surgery on the LED strips. Lots of fiddly soldering.
Basic FastLED rainbow-wipe code works. Research ongoing into how to do any of this, early signs indicate the answer is to bypass any sort of library and write the data directly for max speed.
Lots of thoughts about data structures, maps, quaternions, and images, too many to write here. Found arduino libraries for quaternion math, should work.
WS901 has been configured using the Windows application for high speed serial communication. Found example code for retrieving quaternions. Found example code for remote wifi serial, which i think will be useful for the WS901.
Need to research basic ESP32 code management, wifi updating, etc.
Haven't thought much about the animation strategy, I figure I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, I'm only one man!
