Just about as easy as the MtxOrb displays to control. They actually have
a couple nifty features -- they can automatically draw the bar graphs we
were doing on the MtxOrb, only a bit better:

MtxOrb, you draw the whole bar, then have to wipe the "empty" part of
the bar graph. These guys just take x1, x2, and val, and handle the
rest. They also do scrolling marques automatically. Oh, and they can be
fed bitmap patterns to use in drawing bar graphs. Drool. :)
