Spindleumen Video

A video of the rotary screen project in operation is now available. The issues until now were getting a nice balance between brightness and exposure, which was made all the harder by lack of manual controls for these factors in video mode. With variable speed now implemented, the screen can be slowed right down for photography and sped up for readability.

In other news the code is still being tidied as I systematically¬† hunt down every last undocumented method, uncaught exception and random bug. The “bar chart” mode is now complete and looks quite good – it allows a bar chart of up to eight pixels height to be inserted anywhere in the text stream (also shown in the video).
