The product information mentions
Finally, we wanted BitVision to be an expandable and continually useful tool for creating video art. To this end weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve included an AVR-ISP programming header on the circuit board which can be used to reprogram BitVision with new images, palettes, or entirely alternate applications
Whilst it's not an entirely straightforward drag+drop to get images on to the BitVision it's still easy enough for most tinkerers with the right tools.
The "hard" part is creating simple 32x32 pixel images that work effectively in terms of both graphics and palette.
Taking the idea from a post in another thread-
Here it is... a thread to share and discuss BitVision images.andrewF wrote:Maybe we can get an image thread going for people to share code.
If anyone missed it the page for creating new images is here -
for anyone wanting to mod their BitVision: a good way to find images is use google search, select images, then in the left side column, under "Any size" select 'exactly' and input 32 pxl by 32 px, then search away.
images need to be in gif or jpg, but can be easily converted in Paint.
It is even worth just looking for B&W images, as the image converter works off brightness, so these tend to turn out better in Bitvision. Colour images can be hit & miss, some are ok, some don't work at all. Of course if you are creative you can draw your own.
It'd be great to have the image and palette posted as both screenshots and code.
I'm working on a bunch right now and will hopefully have them finished and tested by the weekend - will endeavour to post any/everything I create
