Learning to Make – How I built an electromechanical display and taught myself basic electronics

A talk from EMF 2014 by Tom Lynch

On Saturday August 30, 2014 at in Stage B

Over the past 5 years since the final year of my undergraduate degree in 2009 I have been building a split-flap display (departure board) like you'd have seen at train stations and airports several years ago. This talk is about how I learnt almost everything I know through curiosity, trying, and making and iterating.
