New Guide: Raspberry Pi LED Matrix Display

Raspberry Pi LED Matrix Display is a new guide in the learning system:

This project will show you how to turn RGB LED matrices into a display for the Raspberry Pi!  You can play games, watch movies, display a dashboard of data, and much more on a big and beautiful LED display.  Anything the Pi outputs to a monitor can be shrunk down and displayed on LED matrices!

The code for this project uses the excellent rpi-rgb-led-matrix library.  This library allows the Pi to light up and display graphics on LED matrices.  Combined with a little bit of extra code to read the Pi’s video output you’ll have a dedicated LED matrix display setup with ease.

The Adafruit LED matrix HAT also makes it easy to connect RGB LED matrices to the Pi.  The HAT takes care of level conversion and power distribution so you can just plug in displays and go.
