Inspiration LED

I had to discover that Youtube has an impressive amount of video about Led matrix project and Arduino.

One of the first video I came across was:

Input/output led matrix

One panel is used as an input such as a touch screen, and the other Matrix recreate the data. At that stage I would not call it Art, but this idea could be devolved in something a bit more…. wild


Multi-touch Sensing through LED Matrix Displays

Using Led Matrix as a sensor is a very interesting idea., here again I found a lot of projects on Youtube, but this one kept my attention. I am not really sure about how it works, but the effect o the monitor is pretty cool. Mixing light and 3D graphic….I am sure we could use `Processing to create the graphic, but wondering what has been use to turn the Led Matrix to a touch sensor???? Investigation needed…anyone out there knows?



This one is pretty cool, and that could be fantastic if we could implement this idea in our group project. The random light on the Led matrix would make a very nice effect with the RGB patch. Nevertheless in this example the Matrix is responding to the input through processing, so if we try that we will need to adapt the code for our need.

Processing code and Arduino are available on the following website×8/?p=35


 3D Borg

Led cube, or 3D cube seems amazingly popular in YouTube, however my favourite and most impressive one is the Borg3D color. This project is a 3-dimensional cube consisting of 5x5x5 RGB LEDs and it is obviously controlled by a microcontroller…But is it Art? I will say no as the author was mainy driven by technology, but the visual is real delight for my eyes.


Simulation can be downloaded on this site


Led Cube

Here another very interesting project using Led cube as a 3D display. Unfortunately there is not much detail about how it has done and what is really the final result, but the concept in a way simple  and on the other hand fantastic. Another example of simplicity but I am sure very complicated to archive.
