MQTT Scroller for the Galactic Unicorn

I had a couple of hours on the train to try out the Unicorn (its great) - i have added an MQTT version of the scroller text at:

[Galactic-Unicorn-MQTT-Scroller/micropython at main · ucl-casa-ce/Galactic-Unicorn-MQTT-Scroller · GitHub]

Thought some people might find it useful,

Exactly what I’m looking for.
I havn’t managed to get it working yet, but it’s my first project.

Thanks for getting me started.

Just to update - there is now also a 3D printed case as part of the MQTT scroller github …

and Fusion360 files if anyone wants to edit - eg make it a little deeper…

Mind if I link your great project from the Github docs @Smithee11 ? :)

It would be an honour :)

Hi Andy, this looks amazing. The reason I bought the GU was to try and interface it with my Home Assistant. This appears to be exactly what I need. I’m a novice tinkerer so need to get my head around MQTT but I’m sure I’ll get there eventually - Thank you so much.

Home Assistant has a nice MQTT integration - so you could use HA to send our messages :)
