POV Fidget Spinner

This is the obvious next step to the Fidget Spinner, and the last project involving one. I promise.

I'm sure a lot of us have seen persistence of vision displays before. As I kid I even had an "iTop" which was a top that would spin and write different metrics of the top while it spun. I decided to build this into the latest fad, the fidget spinner.

This was a natural course of the way the Fidget Spinner was going. So I had to do it.

8 LEDs run by a shift register, SAMD21 MCu, hall Latches, magnets, whats not to love?

Has a bunch of fun displays like RPM, number of spins, words, all can be reprogrammed in Arduino IDE.

This is great, just began my own POV spinner after seeing one my niece had which lit up. Was hoping someone had done a similar project. Looks like it works a charm!
