I’m back with my latest Instructable that I wanted to share, it’s called “PixelBrite: a study in pixels” on Instructables.com.
It’s a 10×10 LED display made with four WS2801 RGB LED strands, a Teensy microcontroller, an SD card reader, some tinted acrylic and MicroRax aluminum frame. There’s also some open-source software based on the Adafruit libraries for making your own low-res pixel patterns, so even if you don’t have the hardware you can still have some fun playing with pixels.
If you’re looking for the open-source files they can be found at the LeoneLabs PixelBrite GitHub
I hope you guys enjoy and let me know what you think!
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.
