Older, equipped with some basic electronics knowledge and a deep interest in innovative display systems, I thought of a way of transforming my Rooms wall into a dynamic glow in the dark canvas.
While doodling on a Vinyl Glow in the Dark paper with a bright white light, i realized an interesting display could be built from it: GLO.
GLO consists of an array of 5mm UV LEDs that run on a simple linear axis, powered by long thread and a Stepper motor. The UV leds act like pixels, turning on at the right time, and drawing our desired text on UV sensitive surface such as my Wall (paper).
The result is a cool mystic, message board that glows in the dark and displays Twitter Trends, RSS Feeds, and Custom Text on my wall…slowly fading out.
Warning: Lying in bed watching favorite news slowly fade out, can make you (me atleast) very sleepy.
Here is a Video of it, pulling and printing a Sports Headline from BBC on my wall:
