Messing around with Flip-Dot displays.

Ok so I thought I should warn you now, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING.

Be ready for any outcome. Maybe I’ll end up having a working flip-dot display, maybe I will end up in jail for burning down my building doing activities outside of my insurance coverage.

Though I passed most smoke tests successfully over the past few years playing with Arduinos, I don’t have any formal training in electronics and I cannot guarantee that what you see here will fall in the best practices category.

I rely mostly on what’s available online from fellow hobbyist, and guess what, there isn’t much about flip-dot displays out there.

I’ll do my best to make it work and hope to get some useful feedback from more knowledgable/experienced people out there, and if anything, help somebody else with their flip-dot displays.

Alright, enough talking, let’s get into it.
