Yes, I know one of the LEDs is burned out...my dumbass bought LEDs a tad too large to put next to each other so I had to Dremel them all down a bit and I guess I got a little too happy grinding that one down...

And yes, I know the LEDs aren't straight...I'm an engineer, not an artist :p

just slap some of those rectangle shaped LEDs (or a LED bargraph) in there and it'll be really cool!
like I said before, we need to make a website for this stuff

a website all about DIY devices and such
and simple enough instructions (detailed iow) for non-EE people (like me) to be able to do it.

so who wants to do this for us? :D

Are you going to post how to make them?

And how would you put that in one of our cars?

Can you imagine doing it in a way that it even tells you how fast your going

If you look at the previous thread started by PearlR/T, the schematic's there.

As for putting it in your car, well, that's up to you :) I just built this as a proof of concept; you can arrange the LEDs any way you want.

Looks like VB Black Belt's got something for your speedo as well.

If it's an A/F Gauge than that is pretty cool.
This is a tachometer...an A/F gauge done this way would be even easier, as you wouldn't need any of the circuitry below the first line.

Tach.

I think his initial idea was to make a heads up display...

~edit~ Damn, Mike beat me to it.

Right, so could you make an A/F Gauge that wasn't quite so jumpy.
If you could make one that could be stable like the tach gauge I would be up for that.

I only asked if it was an A/F cause someone posted "Looks good, Lawerence. No more crazy pulses"
I was figuring the pulses were in reference to the A/F type of squirelliness.

I got lazy, as usual :) I have about 1/2 of the parts I need here, most importantly the laser scanning unit, but haven't sat down to write firmware for the controller yet (i960 based...should've gone with a nice '030 or '040 instead :mad: )

Are you going to cruise down to SD this weekend for the gathering?

It'd be nice if the HUD did speed, Tach, boost, fuel, oil pressure, and anything else you could htink of...then it'd be worthy of selling for some good cash!
