AdaVision – DIY 150 LED video wall project pack

Window-50

AdaVision – DIY 150 LED video wall project pack. AdaVision is our biggest project pack ever! For all lovers of LEDs and LED walls, we finally have a project pack for making your very own stand-alone mini-LED wall. This project is designed to work with Processing to display graphics demos, low rez MPEG movies, Processing sketches and animations, or a webcam but of course its all open source and documented so that you can adapt it for your own nefarious & blinky purposes.

Once assembled, the LED wall is 17.7″ wide x 11.8″ tall x 3″ deep with 150 diffused LEDs arranged in a 15×10 matrix. The LEDs connect to a small Arduino-like microcontroller board that does the driving work and provides a USB interface. Any computer with a USB port running Windows, Mac or Linux can drive the wall by sending commands to the microcontroller. We suggest using the open source graphics system Processing and have a bunch of fantastic tutorials and example for using the wall in Processing. Please visit the AdaVision project page for tutorials, instructions, details, software and more!

Each project pack contains:

You will also need to provide the following (not included!)

  • Soldering iron and solder
  • Screwdriver for assembling plastic case
  • ATX power supply with power cable with more than 5V/10A output – available at any computer supply store

We make these packs “to order” sign up to get an email when we have them ready!


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
