I am new to Arduino and have a question. I am working on a project to take a white board that we use at work, and replace all the "fill in the blanks" with led numbers/text. From the research I have done, this is def doable with Ardrino, but thats about as far as I've gotten.
What I really need to know before I start on this project is weather there is an effective way to run multiple seven-segment displays (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven-segment_display
) or if they all have to be run individual. If there is a way to do this, could someone point me in the correct direction, as I have spent some time researching this and found little help. I don't know if its just because I'm new at this and don't know where to look, or if it is just not as easy as I had hoped.
Also, when I first started brainstorming this project I had the idea to use the old-schoolish split-flap modules (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split-flap_display
) but could not find anywhere to purchase the individual modules. Does anyone know where I could pick some of these up?
Thanks in advance for any help!!
