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)

Source code (it is also a media player) here.

Parts used

  • Raspberry Pi
  • RGB LED Panel
  • Pixel
  • 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).
