PS:One has a new fan.

I’m one of Pumping Station: One’s newest members.  Ever since I attended my first meeting I fell in love with the atmosphere and people.  One of the first ideas I had was to figure out a way to reuse some of the old projects that are just gathering dust.

My idea came to me when Mitch Altman stopped by the space to teach a soldering lesson.  One of the kits that were offered was Adafruit’s mini POV.  This got me inspired to find a way to use the spoke POV kits that were currently on the TRON bike.  So I found an old fan, and replaced the blades with a scroll-cut plywood frame and attached the spoke pov kits to it.  After the POVs were attached I took some L brackets and extended the front cover so it would fit over the POVs.

So without further ado, Pumping Station: One’s newest fan:

    Most excellent!! I just ordered SpokePOV kits this week with idea to put them in fans for a conference booth display. I had no idea if it would look good or not until I see this wonderful mod last night at the meeting :)

    Thanks!
