IoT Led Marquee
« on: February 22, 2015, 11:18:53 am »
So over the past few years I have been working with an led marwuee panel reverse engineering the panel and figuring out how to make it work again. We have acheived this goal.



Now a bit of back story. This marquee was given to me by an old friend of mine with the intenet of making it better. It used to run an old z80 based board that was just slow and unuseable.

Lo and behold I got a spark core at maker fair last year and have now made some hardware to go with it and now I have an IoT connected Led Marquee.

Led Marquee assembled

Led Panel Front

Assembled and installed New Controller
So whats next. I plan on making it a Vu-meter and a Post/twitter reporter. Why because why not!

Questions Comments? Poke my brain this was a fun learning experiance!
