A project log for Dot flippers

or "flip dotters" if you want. Let's just talk about flip-dot/flip-disc displays and projects using them :-)

Dave Jones of EEVblog got some coiled dots :

And this video made me discover where to buy these 7×1 modules and 16×24 modules :

Now here is a very interesting store in Germany :

7×1 FlipDots

The 16×24 looks great !

They also look smaller than the usual display, which is great for graphics displays...

16×24 flip dots module

Has anybody else seen this model before ?

Hi Yann, I acquired two modules which have such in-half splitted dots like your shown 16×24 module. Reverse engineering is not done yet them but maybe you also bought some and did it?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Hello Robert !
I'm not yet ready for the stage of reverse-engineering this module but you're welcome to share your results :-)

  Are you sure? yes | no
