Motorized POV using Arduino

Story behind work- It’s August & in India its Rakshabandhan festival we celebrate when a sister tie a well wish thread on his brother right forearm. In return brother gifts sister something in any form he wish, so this festive I tried to do something new as a gift item or as a toy or as a project. Suddenly this idea of making POV stroked my mind. So far I’ve seen many manual POV project but after some search I got a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r63DsBmd6RA&feature=player_detailpage of making motorized POV.
