Advice Needed DIY POV Bike Project

by J_Rory on Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:45 pm

Hello, I am a high-schooler working on a project. I don't have a lot of experience with electronics, so a bit of help would be appreciated. The goal is to make a Bike POV system similar to the one in this adafruit tutorial: https://learn.adafruit.com/bike-wheel-pov-display/overview. However, I would also like to add Bluetooth capabilities so that it could be controlled by a smartphone.

Right now, I have hit a bit of a roadblock since I am not 100% sure which microcontroller and bluetooth board to use. Currently, I am planning to use a Metro Mini 328: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2590 and a Bluefruit LE SPI Friend: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2633. I am pretty sure that these would work together for my intended purpose, but would like confirmation before I make a purchase. I am also wondering if there are any other lower cost alternatives to this setup. Thanks, and have a great day!
