mypixel:setAnchorPoint(0.5, 0.5)
mypixel:setPosition(64, 64)

function onTimer(event)
   -- add 1 degree each time the function is called
   mypixel:setRotation(mypixel:getRotation() + 1)
end

-- create our timer and add an event listener
-- 24 = delay in milliseconds
-- 360 = number of repetitions (here the result is 360 degrees)
local timer = Timer.new(24, 360)
timer:addEventListener(Event.TIMER, onTimer, timer)
timer:start()
