An Unforgettable Installation

Sporting events can get pretty rambunctious. What if there were a way to capture the attention of  a rowdy audience through an app on your phone? From game times and field locations to wayfinding and special event notifications, a Split Flap Display is an ideal way to communicate information to the mass crowds that attend sporting events.

How Oat Foundry Makes Split Flap Displays

Each Oat Foundry Split Flap Display contains an array of individual modules.  Each module comes with 50 unique character flaps and its own driving motor.  Using a hall effect sensor, the modules continuously track their home position to avoid miscommunication.  The Oat Foundry Split Flap Display runs on Linux and has a cloud based messaging interface so you can send it your custom messages from anywhere in the world – manually or autonomously.  See below how you can talk directly to your Split Flap Display anywhere, anytime.

The Split Flap is designed and manufactured with over 5,800 parts per standard 48 module display which runs on 110-220V power. Numbers, letters, and characters are displayed on each flap, precisely rotated to show the desired message commanded by our interface.

From sheet metal and PCB design to how we get the motors to turn the flaps, Oat Foundry designs and manufactures every part of our Split Flap Displays right here in our shop just outside of Philadelphia, PA.
