    Ben gets to work creating what he imagines a television would be in a steampunk world. This mechanical display will rotate a panel of LEDs at a very fast rate to create an illusion of solid images. After giving an overview of his ideas for the project, Ben gets to work designing PCBs, which he'll stuff using both surface mount and through-hole soldering. He makes sure the LED PCBs function correctly before beginning his designs for this mechanical wonder.
