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:
- 150 x 12mm diffused LED pixels
- Laser cut plastic enclosure in black 3mm acrylic
- Bag of 4-40 1/2″ screws and hexnuts
- Microcontroller board
- JST cable to connect to pixels
- 3 x ATX power cables
- Mini-B USB cable for connecting to a computer
- 6″ x 1/8″ heatshrink
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
