How do you control more than one display?
howto flipdot with a raspi
That display is so cool! The only problem is that it must cost an arm and a leg, and an LCD costs a few quid...
there are several options for the displays (size of the display grid, size of the disks, colors, controller configuration, etc) the one shown here is a 7 x 28 grid of 15mm black / white disks. we emailed alfazeta at email@example.com, worked out what we wanted, and then paid them thru paypal. the displays are somewhat fragile but were vary carefully packaged and arrived with no problems.
yes the raspi 3 has builtin wifi so it makes it easy to connect the flipdot display to feeds from the interwebs ;)
Awesome display. This would be great for steaming live text feeds. - DIY Hacks and How Tos
Cool flip-board display! I've wanted to build one of these for a while. How do you order these from that company? - DylanD581
