It may require a second processor
I was trying to avoid that. Actually, I have avoided that
So far at least. But I have secured me some atmega 644's, just in case. I have not yet tried to program those though. Also, I would need to make a new "mainboard" for the cube then (If I can fit it in there, as one connector is basically locked to a position and I need to design it around it).
I was wondering if you thought of scrolling the numbers around...
Which is also what it does for the text. So yes I though of that with the clock numbers too. If I make a "clock" mode that is. I might do, it's a neat idea.
I'm getting interested in making somthing similar now....
Never was much of a fan of moving displays, but this is cool.
Just be aware that this display, since it is 4 by 4 pixels on each side and also somewhat big, it's best viewed from a distance. Or on video. Up close it is sort of awkward (?) too make out the letters scrolling by, at least in the beginning. Not sure how to explain it, but it is easier from a little distance. Another thing making it even more awkward to make out the letters, is that some of them are 5 pixels tall, and borrows the top-face edge pixels.
I keep finetuning the documentation, so it gets longer and longer it seems.
Also, my wife wants to know if she can buy one
Hehe ok. I'm sorry but I don't really think I will part with it just yet, and now that I know how much work it was... Actually I'm still not quite finished with it. I hope to get an acrylic casing for it next month (thanks to mowcius here on the forum). Then I have to dismantle the hole thing, drill a few holes and put it back together.. hopefully without breaking anything.
Btw A1, you have the coolest nick! Awsome logo/profile picture too
