    assembled using custom laser-cut acrylic panels, the clocks use (2) two P5 sized rgb LED panels, which are mounted side-by-side to display the 128x32 dot resolution (just like a pinball DMD). each clock measures approximately 28.00" (w) x 7.50" (h) x 1.50" (d)
    although the clock can only display monochrome colored animations, the user has the ability to select between one of 7 colors (red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, teal or white) by toggling the six dip switches accessible from the backside of the clock (see below for legend)

    the clocks ship ready to mount on the wall (with 2 hanging holes [16" on center]) or place on a shelf or desktop. only a small amount of assembly required to install the front panel with the enclosed hardware and tools
    (the front, transparent gray acrylic panel is shipped with the protective paper still attached to prevent it from getting accidentally scratched during transit

    the clocks feature a custom designed, laser cut acrylic front and rear panel. the front panel is a dark transparent grey (to neatly hide the internal components when the clock is not powered on) and a rear panel that is black, featuring material that has a glossy front side and matte back side (to help reduce/eliminate fingerprints).
    custom cut-outs in the rear panel allow access to: CR2032 battery, the power cable port, a 6-pin ICSP header to facilitate updating the run-dmd pc board's firmware and the 6 toggle switch block to change the clock's display color

    color selectable dip-switch settings:
    on-off-off-on-off-off = red
    off-on-off-off-on-off = green
    off-off-on-off-off-on = blue
    on-on-off-on-on-off = yellow
    on-off-on-on-off-on = purple
    off-on-on-off-on-on = teal
    on-on-on-on-on-on = white

    on - up, off - down

    information regarding how to adjust the many options found in the clock can be found here:

    TomGWI's run-dmd clock from the last batch[picture shamelessly stolen from TomGWI]

    the cost per clock is $440 plus shipping, and each clock includes the following:
    - a mostly assembled run-dmd clock
    - (1) CR2032 lithium coin battery (to store all user defined settings and keep time when the clock is powered off)
    - (1) 5v, 10a power supply to power the clock with a 6' grounded 3-prong cable (north american standard)

    I think it is James, at least that is what my Paypal payment says. J.M. Are probably his initials.
