This is an easy and simple hardware to create a POV display. The hardware consists of a Hall sensor, Arduino Nano, 17 x 5mm LEDS of various colors, etc. The Hall Sensor is connected to analog pin A5 with a pull-up resistor. The circuit works with 3.7V to 5V DC and a 3.7V battery is ideal to use. The user may use as many LEDS as required. This project can also be used to create many applications such as Bar-Graph display, LED light effects. A large 8.5 mm hole is provided to mount the motor coupling. Refer to the diagram for mounting the hall sensor, motor, and magnet.

POV or persistence of vision refers to the optical illusion that occurs when visual perception of an object does not cease for some time after the rays of light proceeding from it have ceased to enter the eye. The illusion has also been described as “retinal persistence”, “persistence of impressions”, simply “persistence” and other variations.”
