ws2811 and POV

well, I have been experimenting with using the ws2811 high density strips for persistence of vision batons (pixel poi) using the Teensy3 to run the show. Unfortunately, the chips inside the WS2811 leds just aren’t fast enough, as you can see from the image below:

the problem is that the frequency of PWM is too slow. Its unfortunate as this strip is 144leds/m, and that gives a nice length of poi for 60 pixels. oh well.
