in order to draw attention to the object, it has to reveal itself shortly. this will cause an irritating moment and make people want to explore the nature of the POV display. motion of the eye is necessary for that.
tests with the prototype have shown that even the saccades of the human eye are able to enable the effect. when looking around in a room where such a display is placed, in the corner of ones vision the motive displayed suddenly appears. i hope that the larger version with 32 LEDs will be visible even better when letting a glimpse glide over it by chance.
another possibility would be to set the display up in places where people are bound to move their eyes. even better when always in one direction.
in this case it is interesting to find a content that matches the surroundings again… for example on the side of a racetrack the letters “CO²” could be shown.
