Last weekend, on our way to Site3, Darin and I went to PlasticWorld in Toronto. After purchasing lots of great plastics we were discussing some of the cool things we could make, edge-lit displays being one of them. After googling the subject I came across one of the first applications using edge-lit displays; the Non Linear Systems digital voltmeter (DVM) produced in 1953. The NLS DVM is so interesting to watch that I want to create a similar display for a digital clock. I know that Darin also has an awesome project in the works dealing with a unique application of edge-lit displays.
