NEW GUIDE: LED Protest Sign @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
Light up a night-time demonstration with this full-color RGB matrix protest sign. This new learn guide will show you how.
This project makes it simple to use your own graphics on the sign — it’s as easy as dragging and dropping .bmp image files into a folder.
CircuitPython running on the Feather M4 with the RGB Matrix FeatherWing drives any of our RGB LED matrix panels.
You can use the large 6mm pitch version and 3D print the provided brackets to hold LED diffusing plastic. Screw a yardstick or other thin strip of wood to the panel and you can go out and march.

While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
