whoa that's way cool, do you think it possible to turn it into a clock?
bissaorboea (author)  liquidhandwash2 years ago
yes, the original Split Flap display technology was used for clock too.


Didn't Marty McFly have one of those in BTTF?
This would be perfect for oblique strategy cards.

You could turn this into a Mutoscope. Just come up with a Steampunk and like case and you got it !

Don't need a machine !
"Should I ask for a raise ?" : YES !
"Should I call this cute Guy ?" : YES !
"Should I sell ?" : YES ?
"Should I buy a boat with the money and live in a Pacific paradise with the cute guy and without my boss ever after" ?" : YES !
Simple !…

Love your idea !
Thanks for sharing.

That is too cool! Nicework
That Arduino case in the pictures is pretty slick too, did you create it? I'd sure like to get my hands on those files.
bissaorboea (author)  Tomdf2 years ago
No, I find it on the internet, google "Arduino Cases by variador".
