Neat project, but I had some of the same questions as you did.

  This thing is way above my pay grade, so if the questions are foolish, I apologize.

  How many charactors can this device store? Must they always be displayed in the same order or can you automatically change messages? Do the LED's damage the parent painting? Could you set other displays and shuffle between using the same controller.

  Some earlier post mentioned waiting rooms and I am just trying to figure how many times I would be willing to read it before I scream and want to tear it down.

Hey Al, Mrdon has a good question here. Do you have a schmatic to go along with the gadget?

Great gadget! Just wonderful. I don't know if I could do it but I might try building one. Looks a little intimidating.

Al, That's pretty awesome. What was the motivation behind doing the project? Do you have a circuit schematic diagram for the project to post?.

Hey John, the secret painting is a great idea. This current project doesn't have an IR sensor and RGB LEDs but here's another project . I will try the secret painting effect for sure on that one.

Al, Very cool project! In reviewing the Build Instructions, quite a bit of assembly mastery. How long did it take for the project build?

John,, This project is appropriate for scrolling messages. Adding color mixing via RGB LEDs adds another level of aesthetics for this project.

NadineJ, I agree. Nice way to pass time while waiting for an appointment. If sensors are included the artwork can be interactive and visually appealing.
