So after running into difficulties compiling the c code from peteronion.org.uk/PiProgs I emailed Peter, I needed to add -lm to the end of the line and bingo worked straight away. The demos that Peter has included include Tetris, Clock, game of life, Squares and kaleidoscope and shows how a simple screen can be made to do literally anything.
I've since seen pictures over the tinternet showing the same displays being used to show pictures and framed in a frame too.
Many ideas and possibilities for this great rgb device.
