I’ve built a digital photo frame with a 8×8 RGB led matrix as display. It uses a Raspberry Pi and was programmed with Python. It has a few animations, you can play Snake on it and it also can act as a clock. I’ve got inspired by the game frame.
Before I’ve used the Raspberry Pi, I’ve experimented with an Arduino and some green LEDs. I’ve created a simple circuit with a button and programmed “Snake” on it. The LEDs were controlled via multiplexing.
This project was more of a “let’s play around with Arduino and Raspberry Pi and learn how you can use them”
You can find more details in the videos and in the descriptions of the videos below.
