What it is

Scrolling LED ticker message boards. There's one upstairs on the wall in the quiet space and another one downstairs.

They are connected to ?Pi? boards and are controlled through the Hackspace IRC channel. Amazing hacker xxx and xxx set them up.

How to send a message to the LED ticker boards

  • Connect to the #london-hack-space IRC channel
  • Type your message in the following format: ?board [your message]

Example: if my name on IRC is RedTomato and in the #london-hack-space IRC channel I type:

?board Do not be on fire

The Hackspace boards will display in scrolling mode:
RedTomato Do not be on fire
