Hacking An LED POV Fan

Posted March 19, 2012 by Chris

“The company where I work has recently been doing a big push for safety, and last week they passed out small POV fans with sayings like, “Thx 4 Being Safe”, “Being Safe is Cool”, “I’m a Safety Fan”, etc. The fan has clear, flexible plastic blades, and one of the blades has a strip of 7 LEDs in it which are used to display the messages. The fan itself is pretty cool….but I wanted to see if I could make it say something else.”
