pixels that you see
on them (in one color). Now compare how big you want the pixels to be
and that should let you know the rough size to be able to expect.
Junior want s a very fine resolution build area, so the pixels are
being kept small.
I am guessing 11cmX9cm is roughly in the same ratio as many monitors
so it could be
larger but might loose some resolution.
Yes, my ideas and dimensions may be off, but I think the concept is right.

any news from your side ?
It has been pretty a long time now, since you announced you would release the project and kit, soon.
Your blog is pretty quiet since one month now.
I'm almost getting ready to start again getting my hands dirty and I'm now pretty impatient to make it.
Please keep us informed.
Any other one going to hare some info on the matter ?
Thank you for your comments!!!!
The idea is not only to sell the full kit, but part of it or just the building plans (very cheap - just to support the development).
Everyone will be able to build one for very low cost.
