This are first steps playing with flipdots. Severals segmenst are controlled by a python script over a serial bus (RS-485).
Three prototypes of the line controller boards with PSoC 4 microcontrollers. Each operates a line of flipdots at different speeds and a connected node.
The same configuration in a much better mechanical frame and behind a glass pane. The node buttons already work.
Naked prototype of a termional unit. The upper three rows are the receive buffer to show incoming packets. The last line is the transmit buffer for outgoing packets.
Masked prototype of the terminal unit already with RGB-LEDs and working buttons.
