<p>This is such a cool project! Just one question, what usb joystick controller did you use for the button controls?</p>
<p>Awesome details, thanks! How did you print and attache the marquee ? Could it use LEDs for backlight ?</p>
I have printed the marquee on A3 paper<br>and is placed between two plexiglass plates<br>A3 marquee is too small so I have to paint a black border at the end of the plexiglass left and right ( on the back of the front glass)<br><br>LED light is bright <br>I used a regular bulb with low lumen
I would love to see more details on the components and wiring
