I found this project after weeks of searching for the right POV setup and Alexander's project delivers. It's fun and easy to make, there are clear instructions and it provides a solid foundation if you're looking to tinker with the software or hardware. The result is a working POV staff that is fun to play with. I've ordered two times from Island Robotics and shipping was fast from the east coast to San Diego both times. The kit of hardware he sells with the board is great and worth the cost.

Well thought out and seller is very knowledgeable.
I ordered the POV staff kit and it literally comes with everything you need except the wood dowel, the LED's, and the outer tube. I did make a couple mistakes during construction but the seller was very helpful and shortly had me enjoying the coolest POV staff ever. Thank you

Totally awesome kit! Great instructions! Works well!
Really well thought out kit (I ordered the whole kit in addition to the main board). Got it together with no trouble, worked first time (well, I did have to swap the comm wires, but that was my fault). Looking forward to making all sorts of cool spinny pictures. Planning to order at least two more kits for an upcoming performance.
I attached an HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor to a project and it was a total pain in the butt to keep it upright and pointed out. This little kit is perfect, and now my sensor doesn't flop all over the place and trigger on things it's not supposed to! This is exactly the kind of awesome helpful thing I come to Tindie for.
