Fan Displays Moving Images on Spinning Leds

by Paul Strauss

ThinkGeek is at it again. This time they’re offering up a fan which can load up animated GIF files from your computer and display them in full color on the blades of the fan.

LED Art Fan

Inspired by those light-up LED spinner rims that might have turned up on Pimp My Ride, The LED Art Fan hooks up to your computer via a serial connection, and lets you download up to 128 frames of art into its internal memory.

Thanks to a little mental illusion called “persistence of vision,” the fan’s rapidly spinning blades create what looks like a full-motion image using an array of 42 programmable red, green and blue LEDs. The fan is a little pricey at $389.99, but isn’t it worth it to look (and feel) oh so cool?

    This looks like another crap cheesey gadget that is going to fall apart and go to landfill. Technobob, how about some QUALITY reviews instead of product placement. Whats the environmental policy of the company making these? Do they accept the stuff back for recycling” What is the carbon footprint of making it, freighting it and running it? I’m sick and tired of seeing this shit on the street in bits because it broke and there’s no option for getting it repaired. Dumb gadgetry technolust is polluting our planet… let’s see some smarter options.

    Wow. Leave it to one person to be the biggest, ignorant, self centered, buzz kill person to totally ruin the review of cool looking device. Seriously Lucy. Whats the carbon footprint of the computer you typed that comment in on. Is it recyclable? Whats it’s company enviromental policy? Will they take it back? They SHOULD take it back to keep people like you from polluting the internet with your self righteous babble. Its just a cool gadget. Get over yourself and go hug a tree or something.

      I agree with Erick Silver. This product is obviously not being sold at any MAJOR retailer, so calm down Lucy. It was made to be a an awesome yet different show piece that not everyone HAS to buy. CHeers, MATE! :)
