I really like the 'hand-drawn' characters. They remind me of the IBM 3165/8 service console. At a time when just about all video terminals were using dot-matrix type displays, the 3066 display characters were 'painted' on like this. It was a distinct and beautiful script.

During the robot rebellion the lasers will be upgraded to flesh-melting power and the phosphorescent sheet that humanities stupid, absent minded thoughts are engraved on will be YOUR FACE.

I want it to have an infinite looped conveyor belt of phosphorescent surface.

That would also fix the keystone problem.
