Han Lee’s Wooden Pixel Display 64 is a sweet 8×8 matrix, created with wooden blocks manipulated by servos,

What makes this project particularly fascinating are the background materials the artist provides. For example, the Flickr photoset showing the stacked motor shields controlling the servos. (Presumably; there isn’t much in the way of a technical explanation of the project.)

I also loved seeing a Lego prototype–a proof of concept that shows the evolution of the display. [via Adafruit]

    simple stupid question: how many servos? 64? N ‘pixels’ therefore N servos? or is there a mechanical means of “charlieplexing” these things? …thankee
