    That is a pretty cool looking device. Major amount of parts in the build.

    Re: 80 x 80 Pixel "Thread Display"

    Reminds me of the display board that used tilting wooden tiles. The angle and reflected light gave them about 8 monochrome levels per "pixel"


    It has been awhile since I've seen it, but there was a possibly similar design used in Airports and Train stations to list Gates and Times. They would cycle through a deck of numbers and letters. Noisy but you always knew when they updated.
