Just another quick image dump of another MadLab build, this time the Micro Marquee from them.
This was a very straightforward build, started with the resistors, followed by the capacitors, then the IC socket and matrix display. Add on the buttons, battery clip, and seat the IC and away you go!
“Programming” your messages into it is fairly simple, you just use the two push buttons to enter each character. It can store up to 56 chars per message, and 3 message slots are available.
I’d recommend this kit to pretty much anyone who wants some kind of easy to make blinky badge kit that has some panache beyond “shove an arduino in it” or whatever.
