I’m really exited to partecipate to the first Cayenne LIVE Show. I’ve decided to show my little PIX matrix. This is a 8×8 led matrix, that I’ve maked by using a neopixel led strip. I’ve cutted the strip each 8 leds, and after I’ve mounted these little strips on a wood surface.
I’ve worked on this matrix like a prototipe for a big project. Two big led matrix that I’ve used like a scenario for an electronic festival. I’ve posted this big matrix on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Remote-Big-Led-Matrix-Artnet-Raspberry-Pi/. The matrix work with Arduino.
The specifications of this big matrix are: Dimensions 1 meter x 1 meter for any matrix, in foot are 3,28 for each side. The total of this matrix, when you “merge” the two matrix is 2 mt x 1 mt. I can combine the matrix and use those like a one. The big led matrix working with ArtNet protocol, and you can use this on a computer and drive the matrix.
But the topic of argument is the little one matrix, that I’ve called PIX. This matrix working on Arduino nano, and use a code that I’ve wrote for Cayenne LIVE show. I’ve decided to share the code that can show some shapes and text on my matrix. For my code I use neopixel library, and some definitions for colours. Well the result is on GitHub.
