The SpokePOV Images thread!

by mux on Fri Dec 09, 2005 3:58 am

I had a quiet night tonight, which is pretty rare, so I made use of it by playing with my newly-working SpokePOV's. I made a bunch of properly-sized BMP images, and figured I'd share them with you folks. Click on the images to download the larger .BMP versions:

Image
alien.bmp (600x600)

Image
bomb.bmp (600x600)

Image
commodore.bmp (600x600)

Image
dragon.bmp (600x600)

Image
floppy.bmp (600x600)

Image
golfball.bmp (600x600)

Image
litter.bmp (600x600)

Image
mackie.bmp (600x600)

Image
pawprint.bmp (600x600)

Image
phoenix.bmp (600x600)

Image
skull.bmp (600x600)

Image
tux.bmp (600x600)

Image
weed.bmp (600x600)

Image
x0xb0x.bmp (600x600)

All of these images have been tested in the SpokePOV software, though I've only actually transmitted a few of them over to my spokes. I've decided to put my two SpokePOV's on my rear wheel, and I think I have to order another two kits for my front wheel. With one kit, you have to be going pretty damned fast to get a good POV effect!

I'm currently rocking a space invader on my bike... the same space invader I have tattooed on my chest. ;) I'm keeping the x0xb0x.bmp on close hand, though, for long bikerides while "tuned"...

Please use this thread to post more SpokePOV images!

wow these are really awesome. i never really came up with anything better than the biohazard or pacman/ghost...although the pacman/ghost thing was really spectacular. please also post pix of it "in action" if you can!!

one thing is that usually the more writing/complicated (litter/acidinside) the image the tougher it is for people to understand. the more generic (like the commie64/golfball/bomb/alien) the more "clear" it looks. its surprisingly difficult to recognize the symbols when they're whizzing by you.

Here are a few I've made so far.

The throwing star one is funny because the SpokePOV is anything but stealth!

I'm going to get my friend to take some panning action shots.

I remember seeing the biohazard, but these are quite cool. I might actually get one of these thingies, once my arm heals up. How much is the kit for it?

Here are some images i made for spokepov. They are all designed in a way so that the hub does not interfere with the picture.
Thumbnails are only for reference, photobucket changed them to jpegs so i uploaded the bitmaps seperately.
If the links expire pm me and i will put fresh links in.

I completely accidently stumbled across this page while doing homework... It has LOTS of cool designs i'll be trying out (check out the bottom).
