P5 LED Panel With Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Good walkthrough for some flashy LED panels, shared by TomHammond on Instructables:

“Colossus Micro” is an animated light display in a portable size. It uses a “P5” LED panel that is controlled by a Raspberry Pi Zero W. Here are its features:

  • Convenient size (12 x 6″)
  • Full color, high resolution LED display (2,048 pixels)
  • Great for a tabletop display for trade/craft shows, displaying eye catching information, and anywhere that benefits from a bright, colorful display
  • Wifi controllable from your smart phone or laptop (built-in wifi “hotspot”)
  • Battery powered using an internal rechargeable battery (also runs from a wall outlet)
  • Displays static text/graphics, moving text, and animations
  • Animations and graphics created on your laptop/computer with xLights, then uploaded wirelessly to the display
  • Self contained (via included mounting bracket and cover)
  • Easy to assemble (minimal soldering)

P5 panels are a good way to get into the world of LEDs and pixels. They are easy to setup and instantly rewarding; you can display anything on them from text, animations, and video.
