Lucia – generative light project


Alex writes

First test of our generative light project.
In this case using Moka’s physics engine.

24 bit
Custom 20 x 112 pixel LED matrix
P10 LED modules
Real time control by Linsn LED control card (linsn.com/indexen.htm)

The Linsn card takes a DVI feed from the computer and maps the first 20×112 pixels on screen to the LED matrix

The goal is to write a shell app in Open Frameworks (openframeworks.cc/) capable of loading different generative animations written with Lua (lua.org/)

There will be a user interface and the possibility controlled by buttons on the device plus the ability to control it through an iPhone.

Now that we have the LED matrix we are sourcing the rest of the parts needed and designing the enclosure to contain it all.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I would love to see the source to this. Is it available?

  2. How big is this thing and what does it cost?

    What is the advantage of this over using an LCD screen mounted in a box? Right now I can buy a high resolution 24″ LCD for $200.
