Walter's eyes... And the Winner is...

 After coding and reviewing all of the entries, Kari, our (temporary) flatmate Eliza and myself have made a decision.

The winner is rik with the "I forgot my glasses" entry. --rik, you have been on a roll...

 

***Original Post***

Yup, I'm a lazy bastard...

If any of you folks find your self bored, drunk or both and you have a minute, why don't you help me design Walter's eyes.

Here's the Rub:

You can use any ASCII letter or symbol.

The display that these eyes will be shown on is 2 Lines, 16 charicters long each.

Do it!

I love them. They serve a purpose.

Thanks, god, we did not have animated gifs all over tha pages. Therefore this relevant animation stands out.

Brilliant!

What a tiny, tiny world this is!

The monkey project is from a guy named "Dean Hall". Dean is an old family friend of ours but I haven't seen him in 20+ years. I knew he was a computer guy from back in the day, I had no idea what he actually did. Also, notice 2 things -one, the website is purple AND there is a little "power cat" logo up at the top... He must still be at K-State!! That is my home town and the university that both my parents taught at.

--Too friggin' much, yo!

At any rate, it is cool to know about this set-up but my assumption is that the serial conveter backpack won't allow this to work. Hmm, maybe i should get a blank screen and set it up with the whole "11 wires" system.

yep, what a tiny world 

 

as I understood that Dean's project was interfacing the LCD directly, I wandered about the fact that the serial adaptor could prevent you to access those advanced function

 

from what I read in the datasheet,  It looks like it's possible to send ANY command to the LCD

If, as from I read, your display is an Hitachi HD44780-based lcd,

it seems that you can create your own set of custom characters 

 

here is an howto
