All the Matrix Orbital LCDs are available to individuals from HVW
Technologies (

All the Matrix displays share the same interface and basic
command set. I suspect that the only issue would be re-formatting
the text to take advantage to the 40 character width.

Note that the Drive bay kits come with displays that have the wide
voltage option. If you want to use something other than 5V, you'll
need to oder this option.
