OpenWRT router with status VFD

I had tangled with Broadcom-based routers before, but this project was just for fun.

I mounted a WRT54GL motherboard in this custom enclosure with an acrylic front panel. I wired in a big ISE Electronics 2x40 vacuum fluorescent display. The router runs OpenWRT firmware. The front panel status display is running a custom script and device driver, written in Lua.
