The concept for RIO (Rendered-Input-Output) was inspired by Google’s AnyPixel project, but after considering using their library, the team instead chose to engineer something in-house. Their solution employs Slack as in interface for passing GIFs and video from the Internet to the display, which uses a Raspberry Pi to control a bunch of WS2812B LED strips.
