Approximate Target €220
Running Total €283.92
Status Completed

Let's build the LED Light District!

The prototype of the screen is working. We can run a cool animation, and we can play snake. We can interface with the screen with a simple protocol, or via an api that is as simple as calling screen.setColor( x, y, [ r, g, b ] ), leaving the threshold to build a lot more games very low.

So let's build this sucker.

The following proposal will realize a 10 x 8 screen. A pixel is .2m by .2m so the width and height of the screen in m is 2m x 1.6m

Any extra money will allow us to realize an even bigger screen.
