The next job with this IV-4 design is to write some pleasing transition effects which consider the set of four tubes as a homogeneous synchronised group. I'm hoping that will lift the design and make it a bit more interesting.

i had my reservations about posting it , because my daughter sometimes looks at my Youtube channel, but then again she is at highschool, so she probably hears worse and probably has no interest in anything I do !
Word filtering is something I have to look at soon, because I think it works in a similar way to word selection when the code, for example, chooses words with 2 or 3 identical letters to the last word, and so on.
A bit like the way that Matt Gorbet's 'Me to you' sculpture works, which changes only one letter at a time, and in doing so proves that less is sometimes more. It seems that sometimes changing all letters at once is quite frantic when compared to changing fewer letters at a time, if that makes sense.
'Me to You'
I have no idea how to make that work though, so it is very interesting at the moment. Assuming that I can get the SD card side of things working quickly enough there will be almost unlimited memory to make themed lists of words, as well as picking lists.

Fortunately it seems to be one of those things that lecturers
routinely set to students, so there's a wealth of info available. The
magic phrase I found was 'Word ladder'. This threw up loads of
strategies for doing this bollocks.
The thing I'd also like to do is a pseudo English speech machine. I
Basic structures, so I can use PICbasic to code something up. By
Basic I mean the old programming language, not Visual Basic.
am happy to make the parts of speech lists, it's the structure I have
difficulty with. Please collaborate.

For example, taken out of the current context who knows what this means
"Thanks to the word ladder tip research could begin"
