    It wasn’t immediately clear to me how he is doing the overlay via the SPI hardware since there is no SPI device on the bus, but I think he is just using it to over-write the video signal as it passes by on each scanline. His “font” is in the ltrs[] array, sliced by lines rather than by characters.

    The SPI driver shifts the voltage high or low to create the output. That’s pretty cool — I’d like to build a custom bitmap graphics overlay for another project and may try to use the idea.
