Abstract (en)

[origin: US6433761B1] A display device having a multiple columnar arrangement of colored light sources on a carrier. The carrier and mounted light sources are moved, either rotated or swung as a pendulum, within the display device to create a recurring visual image. A control unit within the display device controls actuation of the colored light sources and movement of the carrier such that individual colored light sources are actuated at a point within a surface region to achieve a color mixing at that point.
