"Novatron" is an electronic jewelry object that utilizes a twisted-nematic liquid crystal display (LCD) for its output device. The LCD has 4 "checkmark" image elements that are addressed sequentially, providing a strong illusion of rotary motion.

The gold hemispherical mirrors have cylindrical mirrors extending through their foci, making very complex reflections.
