Microscope is a replica of the installation Stereoscope by Project Blinkenlights. It consists of laser-cut plywood boards. Circuit boards with 7, 8, 9 or 12 LEDs are glued into the wooden frame. Those boards are supplied with data using serial links, which are driven by a master board receiving input via MCUF over an Ethernet link.
