Hive13 Glass Block LED Display Complete!

January 25th, 2011 1 comment

At long last, we’ve completed mounting v2 of the glass block LED matrix in our window. Kudos go to everyone who donated time, money, and advice to finish it. There is a bit of cleanup work needed, but the major work is complete. Check out this video of it in action:
