    I'm trying to do this with my eyes closed. This makes the process much easier yet highly unstable. Further testing will be conducted. *Do not try with tattoo gun on shaved cat, personal injury garaunteed.

    Careful reverse engineering of the the first dot and some hex editing has allowed me to duplicate the second and third dot. Also, I found an easter egg hidden in the dot matrix, apparently one dot times three equals three dots?! Anyone know what this could mean??

    I showed this to my friend and he's an engineer but we couldn't get it to work? Where do the batteries go? Is this Windows compatible or only for Mac?

    The 3 dots are called an ellipsis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipsis

    "a series of dots that usually indicates an intentional omission of a
    word, sentence, or whole section from a text without altering its
    original meaning.[1]
    Depending on their context and placement in a sentence, ellipses can
    also indicate an unfinished thought, a slight pause, and nervous or
    awkward silence."
