Cool student project from our own Matt Richardson, who built this single-character “combination lock” text display for Daniel Rozin’s Designing for Digital Fabrication class in the ITP program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Glancing back over that sentence, I notice at least five things that make me jealous. Nice work, Matt!
