Scrolling display

Just yesterday it occurred to me that I do have a device capable of capturing video: the webcam! So I made a small movie to demonstrate the scrolling I've implemented. Bear in mind that the scrolling speed will be adjustable.

Here is the video-file (AVI, XVid, 4.5 MB).

Sizing comparison: the coin next to the display is a 20 eurocent coin. I've placed the display in it's housing, a darkened plexiglass bay that fits in a 3.5" slot (the size of a floppy drive). There's a small gap to the left of the display, that'll be where the IR detector will go.
