What

A Sort of a tree made of VESA mount arms with screens on it.

The VESA bracket/screen interface uses M4x10mm bolts, the hex socket at the ends of the arms for adjusting the angle needs a 7mm hex key.

Why

Art. (Don't question the art).

Who

User:Sci and User:JasperWallace and you as well!

Computers

Suggested content for screens

  • HAL 9000/Matrix/Flying toaster screensavers (or any other vintage screen savers)
  • Feeds from the space's IRC and Twitter [1] channels
  • Waterfall visualisation of amateur radio bands (via SDR) - see Group:Amateur_Radio
  • https://github.com/klange/nyancat
  • http://www.halproject.com/ - needs flash player, may be possible to hack it to work under linux - works with gnash, a bit lame tho (splash screen advertising the full version).
  • ... add your own here!

Status

Work in progress, more screens and the means to drive them needed.

Looking on ebay the NVS280 is one choice of PCI card, the NVS400 gives 4 outputs and may be more cost effective. Splitter cables are an issue tho (these are DMS-59 splitters, the connector on the card is NOT DVI tho it looks a lot like it) :/
