bits and notes

First look at custom LCD

I had the urge to go through the process of making a custom FSTN LCD panel. So I thought I'd make some sort of digital kitchen timer type thing. Segments of a circle go dark as as time elapses - or something like that. I also went out and made a nice anodized aluminium case for it.

With backlight on, inside its case:

Without backlight:

I'm not quite happy yet with all that bleeding through what should be a black background. It looks quite crisp with the backlight off though. Perhaps no backlight at all to save power?

For now, this has scratched my itch and it's going on the shelf until further notice.
