For an upcoming project - a playclock for American Football - I did some experiments with a 74HC595 shift register IC. I made a little demo video showing the shift register at work. Enjoy.
P.S. I'll do a series of blog posts here about the project soon, showing the progress and explaining how things work. Make sure to come back later for that!
