MadOverlord decided to create a combot robot that was able to display “realtime graphics inside a weapon blade” using a SpokePOV kit. It turned out quite nicely, to say the least. Videos after the jump.

The SpokePOV provides a display created by a line of 30 LEDs, and by sensing the presence of a magnet once per rotation, it can determine how fast it is rotating, and turn the LEDs on and off as it rotates in order to create the illusion of a stable image
