In this project I'll show you how to 3D print, code and assemble your own personal YouTube Subscriber counter for mounting on top of a screen. It will also show your total views. It's low cost and easy to build.
It's built around a low cost Wemos D1 micro controller and a dot matrix display module. With built in WiFi it only requires a USB connection for power once complete. The total build cost is around £15 / $18.
