LED Marquee Repurposed as Video Player #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
[Sprite_TM] is was sent an old LED Marquee by an anonymous fan of his hacking projects. The display isn’t full color, but it’s large — 224 by 48 pixels — and he figured he could render some okay images with the bi-color diodes. In the end,
he replaced the controller and turned it into a video player.
