Persistence of Vision Display
Exhibit Code: GOL-120
Zone: Computer Zone
Location: Golisano Hall (GOL/070) - Room 1445
Time: All Day
Persistence of vision is a phenomenon in which an image resides on your retina for a brief period of time -- roughly a twenty-fifth of a second. This display takes advantage of that fact and allows a single column of color LEDs (light-emitting diodes) to spin rapidly enough to display a message. Such technology can be applied to rapidly spinning object, such as a bike or automobile tire, relatively inexpensively.
