Scrolling led display
« on: February 09, 2012, 07:21:53 PM »
I would like to make a scrolling led display and have it wired into the back of a shirt. I am complete noob to wiring and I know some c++. I know I'll need a microprocessor or pic, some sort of led display chip, and obviously a butt load of LEDs w/ some sort of rubber spray to keep from burning/shocking myself. I've already googled it but all I can find are pre made projects or solid led blocks with no flexibility. So any help/plans/material lists would be greatly appreciated

hi one idea could be to use displays you can chain like the ones form sparkfun rbi backpack: http://wiring.org.co/learning/basics/rgbbackpack.html or use direct led matrix using a controller: http://wiring.org.co/learning/libraries/hellomatrix.html
