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.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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.
