Before I can start designing the time circuit display circuit board, I need to figure-out its outer dimensions, mounting method, and the exact positions of the LED displays. This starts with the enclosure the circuit board is going in: an LMB Heeger Crown Royal series #852.
Now that I know exactly what I’m looking for, it’s time to buckle down and try to find some real-world LED displays for the time circuits.
Now that I have a tentative plan for how I’m going to control all 300-some LED segments, the next step towards making this prop a reality is to figure-out the specifications for the LED displays.
I have a thousand and one little projects and project ideas floating around at any given time, but there’s been one thing I’ve always wanted to build: a replica of the ‘Time Circuits’ from the Back to the Future movies.
