While waiting for the B7971x8 display boards to arrive I worked on the display firmware. This video demonstrates some of the various effects available. They include simple blink, shift word, shift letter, fade, wipe, and wipe with effects.
And in other news, the display boards have arrived. I also have the final enclosure that I will post up on ponoko.com
Look forward to everything you’ll need to build one yourself being available sometime within the week !
PS) I hope you enjoy the electronic club music also.
