With all of those RGB LED's, it seems like the Deluge ought to do all kinds of psychedelic animations. How about a boot screen and a sleep mode that we can make our own GIFs for.
I'm less gung-ho about gifs but given the resolution of the pads it does seem like there's an opportunity to use that as a secondary display in certain circumstances. Just what those circumstances are I have no idea but once my unit arrives I'm intrigued to see what comes to mind
Haha - yeah, I do a lot of pixel art! There are tons of things I'd rather have though!
The circuit uses the pads as a display sometimes doesn't it? This could be useful. You could get another four characters of legible text on the pads.

Yer I'm surprised the turn on procedure isn't more animated, given how beautiful the pads look when you go between different screens! +1 for being able to add a 16x8 gif into a "boot" + "screensaver" folder for those purposes.
