Smiley.................................

"Smiley" ..... with Parallax Propellor.

Slap a UV laser onto a pan-tilt servo mechanism and blast a 50cm x 50cm sheet of florescent vinyl with it ........

Propeller chip picks up preformed Graphic data matrix from data table........

.... now i am looking for some "Fonts" made in this same way.........Anyone have any ideas?

"Gareth dons his Picasso hat on again series"

EDIT:- "See your design in Glow Light"

Just struck me .......why not design your own graphic ... as above (Circa square 16x16)  and post below and i will do my best to video the result ;-)

Here is the data i am talking about already part of the propeller operating system.....Awsome.....

Its interlaced .....which is a bit of a pig to decode....however i have extracted characters out and lasered them.....

"A" processed in video above.....

There you go........uploaded your "T" above......

Did you increase the speed by the last video? Amazing....a bit slow for TV broadcast but it's a start ;-) Please more about the parts behind the UV LED ;-)

Quick video system rundown posted above..... i found it lurking in my phone...will update with high res rundown when dust settles

Here is a snipit of code......

and yes the speed is increasing....its just a case of balancing servo speed against laser on/off time....

... what i have noticed is that the bluring the laser into the next dot makes for a less "dotty" pattern....(however not so accurate)

repeat
    repeat pos2 from 126 to 100                'y axis
        SERVO.Set(ServoCh2,((pos2*10)))  'set y axis servo
        SERVO.Set(ServoCh1,100*10)        'reset x axis
        waitcnt(clkfreq/2+cnt)                      ' carriage return delay
      repeat pos1 from  100 to  144            ' x axis
       SERVO.Set(ServoCh1,pos1*10) 
      
       waitcnt(clkfreq/10+cnt)                    'THE DELAY     
      
        if  YinYang[pos1-100+(45*(126-pos2))] ==49     ; extract data
           OUTA[7]~~                             'switch laser ON
          waitcnt(clkfreq/10+cnt)              ' blast UV laser for a short time
          OUTA[7]~                                'switch laser off

Was guessing that ;-) 

Haha I like the names of your veriables..."YinYang" it's a very stable one right ;-))) haha

Could you make this ;D

Thanks for your entry into the Hall of LMR Glow Fame ..... consider yourself  "Glowyfied"

At first i made a mess of the Y axis and it looked more like a decepticon badge off the "Tranformers" :-)
