Before you go further, make sure you have three AAA batteries, they'll need to be good batteries but can be alkaline or rechargables.
Insert the batteries into the battery holder
And flip the ON/OFF switch to ON
Wait three seconds for the MiniPOV to 'boot' and you'll see the red, green and blue LEDs light up in order
Then the LEDs will flicker white. This is how it looks when not moving. Turn off the lights and wave the MiniPOV around to see the light display!
