LED Matrix Belt Buckle! – As Seen on Show & Tell (VIDEO) #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Roberto Marquez shared his
LED Matrix Belt Buckle on Adafruit’s weekly Show & Tell:
I was on Show and Tell, but the network connection was weak/unreliable. Here is a video where you can better see the light buckle. It uses a Raspberry Pi, the 16×32 RGB LED matrix, a Pixel board (from Al Linke), and two PowerBoosts. (Above)

LED matrix board
To go wearable/portable, I powered the Raspberry Pi and Pixel board with two
Sparkfun lipo batteries and two Adafruit PowerBoosts (PID 1903 2030).
