…iPhone transit apps are great, but nothing beats having an always-visible sign that you can quickly glance at anytime you want.
Well, let’s go for it. I purchased Raspberry Pi from Amazon, and purchased this sign from BrightLEDSigns.com. I was looking for at least 16 rows of LEDs (to squeeze two lines of text,) and for a simple interface to draw pictures on it, as I didn’t want to spend time to low-level programming. I got the sign for $89 sale price.
After several nights of hacking, I finally had it: my own, always-on customized dashboard with relevant morning information.
