inspired by a project I saw on sparkfun. I had all the parts except the plastic, but I have a laser cutter so… acrylic + old adafruit 8 x 8 led matrix + old adafruit 8 x 5 matrix + adafruit trinket pro *2 + inkscape software spirograph effect = tachyon relay module. The red one has layers, the back one is slightly larger and has 8.

@Mark_Estes great job. How did you make the trace on the plastic ?

Such a simple display concept, yet looks so good!

Yves: The designs were drawn in inkscape using the built in extension/render/spirograph… Then, I used by laser cutter to cut the panel outline (using settings appropriate for cutting) and a 2nd pass to cut the designs (on much lower power settings).
