We discuss the suitability of holographically generated optical potentials for the investigation of superfluidity in ultracold atoms. By using a spatial light modulator and a feedback enabled algorithm, we generate a smooth ring with variable bright regions that can be dynamically rotated to stir ultracold atoms and induce superflow. We also comment on its future integration into a cold atom experiment.
