    Does anybody know of modules like these? or know where I can get them? or maybe sell the parts for me to make them myself?

    I'm not interested in dot displays or 7 or alpha numeric 16 segment displays.

    To roll your own you just need some rectangular LED's and they're easy enough to come by. They'll cost more than a 16x2 LCD though.

    AFAICR: those can be listed under; starburst, sunburst or union jack displays. They look like industry standard segment based alphanumeric type.

    How does it not meet your specification?

    it has to display old-futhark runes. The pattern from the one you linked can't do that

    starburst, sunburst is with dots right?

    I'm not interested in dot displays or 7 or alpha numeric 16 segment displays.

    You will be better off with an OLED or LCD bit-mapped display -- unless you have a ot of money for special tooling. The link I provided does offer that service.

    no I wont, it's an aesthetic thing. I will probably have to submit to dot matrix at some time.

    The dots can be really, really small. However you could contact the manufacturer, if cost is no concern.

    Hello,

    Did you see the pictures below schematic 2 on the given page.
    There is also a zipfile with information how to make it.
