When your favorite YouTube channel is streaming this sign will let you know, in gorgeous Art Deco inspired style!

You'll code it with CircuitPython, and the board's built-in WiFi will allow it to check the YouTube Data API to find out when a channel is livestreaming! Then, it'll light up the RGB LED matrix display with "OFF AIR" or "ON AIR" depending on the current status.

You'll use a beautiful bitmap font and custom line drawing graphics routines to make if fancy.
