Reader [Franz Gabel] purchased a POV kit from ladyada and started modifying it for his own application. He assembled the POV without a PCB so it could fit inside a small metal pipe and attached a leather lanyard. He’s still in the early stages of the project. It is fully assembled, but he’s working on additions like a docking station to recharge and download new messages. He’s also developed a Flash based system for generating new .c files based on text input. Here is his forum post about his project (Coral CDN, so ladyada doesn’t break my arm).
