Flipping Dots Fast.

quote [ The second Covid-19 lock down, and curfew here in France, gave me some time to solder the 2500 components. I have to admit, having a task where you can focus and with an objective, helped me not going crazy during winter. ]

Holy … ! This is a pretty cool project. Comes with impressive videos.

I somehow recognized the gif near the bottom as being Bad Apple less than two seconds after scrolling down to it. I don't know how I feel about this.

I can't help but think that there should be a more elegant way to do this, something that doesn't involve having multiple components per dot. Wikipedia says that they usually use a matrix arrangement, so you only need one switch per row and column. To do animation, you just need much more powerful pulses so you can speed it up.
