Flip Dot Panel Control with Max MSP

A little while ago I collaborated with Tori Foster to create a unique art installation that used flipdot panels to display video footage of traffic from the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. The following videos are some of the successful tests of both the software to read the video and the integration with the flipdot panels. I was responsible for writing the software that transformed the video into binary data that the flipdot panels could read. I was also responsible for the integration of the software with the flipdot panels, and prototyping the functionality of the installation.
