Re-purposing a LED display board from an arcade machine
Andrew Jacobs has been re-purposing a LED display board from an arcade machine for the hackspace. He built a new controller board for it late last year and spent sometime over Christmas writing some firmware to control it. This video shows the current state of play.
In the final version the small characters at the start will scroll in from the top and bottom of the display rather than sideways. He also need to make the characters proportional.
