So I thought I’d make a FEZ version of this great clock http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2011/09/defusable-alarm-clock-is-dy-no-mite.html for some Halloween fun. After receiving the 7 segment LED display from SparkFun, I thought “Crap! I’ve gotta write a driver for this thing”. Then I had a beautiful (almost religious) epiphany. A quick search of the code base turned up EXACTLY what I was looking for: a driver Blue Hair Bob had written last year for this very component! Instead of banging out code, I got busy making my “dynamite” look real. BTW - SF has beefed up the API for this thing since then, so I’ll be updating that code in the near future. Also will post a video of costumed kids trying to diffuse this thing.
That’s what I call some awesome FEZ-OSS. Thanks Bob, and thanks to the community at large for sharing!
