This information radiator uses an oldschool CRT-like font to display the build number and message, plus any check-in comments and modified files, in full-screen. When the build status changes, it will also play either

If an Arduino using the Standard Firmata firmware is connected to a USB port, it will set (actually, pulse-width modulate 100%) pin 9 to HIGH when the build is successful and pin 11 to HIGH when it is failing.
You’ll need a few external libraries installed into your Processing environment:
- Minim: http://code.compartmental.net/tools/minim/
- FullScreen: http://www.superduper.org/processing/fullscreen_api/
- Arduino: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/Processing
Install them and restart Processing to be able to compile and export the application, or if you don’t need to customize anything (doubtful, since the RSS URL is hardcoded to localhost, port 3333 :)) you can run the application directly from the appropriate location for your platform (
