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!
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.
