DigitGrid huge display made of multiple 7-segment displays

Posted on Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 in demonstrations, DIY by DP

Skot built a huge display made of many 7-Segment displays that can display animation. It’s driven via an FPGA board.

    Cool refreshing concept!

    Would cost a fortune to source all the displays.

    Haha interesting. If you want to recycle those old 7-seg displays!
    Nice

    Ack! I didn’t realized anyone had picked this up yet! The new project link is http://www.skot9000.com/digitgrid/

    viva dangerous prototypes!
