Tonight some VHSers (Steven Smethurst,  David Galloway, and Mike Adams) were playing with doug’s word clock design.
We didn’t have any LEDs so we decided to backlight the word clock with a monitor and highlight the words with JavaScript.

 

This hack took about two hours to complete as none of us knew JavaScript, and turned out pretty well.

Demo of the javascript application
