The PLSE sign is a LED sign hanging in the lab that displays various things, like a Game of Life binary clock or deadline countdowns.
Configuring the Sign
The sign is configured through its web UI. This page is accessible only from UW IP addresses.
This web UI lets you write Python programs that run on the computer controlling the sign; this Python program uses a library to send drawing commands to the Arduino controlling the sign.
The Great Refactor
The sign is currently undergoing a great refactor and shouldn’t be used until the great refactor is complete.
