To the left the
main device with the two rotating led bars inside a blue transparent
globe. Using Persistence Of Vision (POV) it shows as a
perfectly stable text message. The message in the photo is just one of
the examples. To the right the
infared remote control used to setup the date/time, alarm time and
messages (max 4).
Built-in is a backup battery that keeps the clock running overnight if you turn the device of.
The globe is sold under various brand names, e.g. Skytech and Nextech (or is it Nexttech?).
Interested? Join the mailinglist or the forum at the projects page and I'll inform you once something significant comes up. BTW these things seem to be around since 2004 so I am suprised I could not find any technical page about it.
