Abstract

A display comprises an LED module 1 mounted for rotation on a base 2. The rotation of the LED's creates for an observer the illusion of a larger display. Control of the LED's by suitable electronic circuitry makes it possible to display textual or graphical information. <IMAGE>

Description

REVOLVING INFORMATION DISPLAYS Text and basic graphics information has been displayed using LEDS (Light Emitting Diodes) for a long time. Characters and pictures are formed by lighting the relevant LEDs in a larger matrix of LEDs. The bigger the matrix the more information can be displayed at any one moment.

This presented idea will effectively generate the same final result. By revolving a small number of LEDs that are positioned in a line, a larger matrix of LEDs will appear to be present.

Two illustrations of how this is achieved is shown in Fig 1,2,3 and 4.

An electronic circuit has been designed by myself to illuminate the LEDs. The circuit is responsible for pulsing out the data pattern that will appear on the LEDs, so that as the LEDs revolves it gives the illusion of words appearing on the devices.

Example applications for the devices are as follows: Fig 1 and 2 - Could be used as desktop or shop window displays.

Fig 3 and 4 - A module could be fitted to bicycle wheels so that a WARNING CYCLIST message can be displayed as the cyclist rides at night.

The modules could be any size and fitted to any device that revolves to act as a warning system, or to just display information in a novel way. <img class="EMIRef" id="027316840-00010001" />

Claims (3)

  1. REVOLVING INFORMATION DISPLAYS 1. The revolving information display comprising of a number of LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that are illuminated by a control circuit so as to display text and graphical information when the device revolves.
  2. 2. The revolving information display as claimed in claim 1, wherein the resultant matrix size can vary by increasing/decreasing the number of LEDs or the revolving diameter.
  3. 3. The revolving information display as claimed in claim 1 and 2, wherein provisions can be made in the electronic control circuit to operate LEDs or other light sources so to vary the type of application.
