As most of the Arduino tinkering makers, I have some NeoPixels LEDs in my drawers. Especially the 8×8 NeoMatrix is a beautiful piece of illumination. But till now, I didn’t have any good use for it yet. Time to make it a bit more useful!
The 8×8 NeoMatrix board features 64 independently addressable RGB LED’s. Of course, you need to control them using a micro controller, like an Arduino or an ESP8266. Which usually results in some breadboards and wires littering your desk.
Of course, a nice 3D printed case could easily solve this. Let’s built the NeoDisplay!

Adafruit NeoPixel NeoMatrix 8×8 – 64 RGB LED Pixel Matrix: Put on your sunglasses before wiring up this LED matrix – 64 eye-blistering RGB LEDs adorn the NeoMatrix for a blast of configurable color. Arranged in an 8×8 matrix, each pixel is individually addressable. Only one microcontroller pin is required to control all the LEDs, and you get 24 bit color for each LED. (read more)
