A FPGA controlled RGB LED MATRIX for Incredible Effects – the Hardware

Boris Landoni from Open Electronics writes: In this post you will find  the description of a graphic display that uses a modular solution based on dot matrix blocks (in which each dot is a RGB LED), that are driven – via a specific bus – by a very powerful control board, that is entirely programmable […]

10×5 RGB LED Matrix with only 5 IO pins

Here’s an instructable on LED Matrix with custom code/software by Ole_L: This is the software which you need: -Arduino -Processing Flash the software to your Arduino and open the processing project with… Processing! Now you should change the line “String portName = “/dev/ttyACM~”;” to your Serial port, on WINDOWS “String portName = “COM~”;” Via the contact […]

ReCoMonB – Real Computer Monitoring Block

Ivan Creations made this ReCoMonB (Real Computer Monitoring Block) and wrote a detailed explanation on his blog describing the build: I managed to de-virtualize the CPU/MEM/HDD/NET stats and now I have them physically represented on my desk. The device that does that is named ReCoMonB – Real Computer Monitoring Block. I have also made the […]
