Afterwards I will be creating a YouTube subscriber counter with them and an ESP8266 by not only finding out how the control PCB for the display works, but also by learning about the RS-485 and UART interface. Let's get started!Thanks to Alfazeta (https://flipdots.com) for sponsoring this video!Music:2011 Lookalike by Bartlebeats
