Welcome to the Seven Segment Sign

The Seven Segment Sign, or SSS for short, is a purely Python, Raspberry Pi-powered system that drives a screen of 1152 seven segment digits (arranged in a 48 x 24 array). But don't let these low specs fool you! This platform provides a beginner-friendly opportunity for anyone to learn how to address complex design problems with strict limitations. Some of the initial demos we've been able to make work are:

Video Player


Arcade Games


and even Doom!


What next?

Even though the physical SSS resides in the BYU NET Lab, the source code, blueprints, and a simulator are all available on GitHub and this wiki!

Take a look at the following links to help you get started:

Happy hacking!
