Several projects using salvaged displays from appliances. Some have links to process documentation.
Some of these appeared in the June 2022 NYC Resistor Interactive Show!
Upcycled answering machine display and case, programmed as a Simon-like game.
Programmed as a slot machine game. 1 switch for input.
Programmed as a clock. 2 buttons for input, rightmost digit fills in a segment every 10 seconds to show passage of 60 seconds.
Programmed with microgame, Climb the Castle mechanic. 3 buttons for input, microwave piezo for sound output.
Programmed with microgame, Frogger type mechanic. Joystick for input.
Programmed with fading animations for now, salvaged microswitches and audio potentiometer for input.
