This started as a little thought. Now I'm kind of excited about it!

Rather than have gaps all over the place I've designed it to have LEDs
that are always off in binary view mode. Labels could be placed over
the dead LEDs. Then in a normal mode the display could be used as a
giant bitmapped display. This might make the LED wall more attractive
to other people.

I know, I messed up on all the captions. The COST is correct. $255 vs

1296 bytes
400 mil spacing, 10368 bits of display, 4212 LEDs wasted in binary view

1280 bytes
300 mil spacing, 10240 bits of display, 4160 LEDs wasted in binary view
