This is a simulation of a split-flap display (often called a Solari board) designed to run in a web browser. It dynamically loads JSON data from a data source and renders that data as characters and images on the board. Individual characters are animated using CSS sprites.
The look and feel are fully configurable by changing the markup and using different sprite images.
Here's an example of the page configured an airport departure board. The data is sorted using the "sort" and "order" query parameters in the URL:
