I was asked to animate a dot-matrix display for the robotics club recently. They wanted something that said "Robotics Club" to hang over their door. We had some old P10(1r) DMDs which I had worked on in the past to make a little scoreboard for a robot football match. And, even though I am not very good at it, I really love animating things. So I decided to give it a shot. I ended up writing an animation software for the DMD in JavaScript which is unfortunately only as functional as a flipbook. But I had fun animating little person carrying a balloon, ugly gear trains and a little pixel Wall-E blinking.
