Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

The title is mostly a placeholder, as I haven't really figured out a name for it yet. This project is a wall hanging that consists of semi-large triangular pixels using discrete RGB LED's and PWM to control intensity levels of each LED, resulting in a 4096-color display.

parts have arrived!

So I got both the Hosfelt and Digi-Key shipments in today. I went through and checked stuff out. There're a few things that I probably really didn't need to get, like a DIP pin aligner and a breadboarding circuitboard, but whatever...
The magnifying binoculars are pretty sweet, but I think I'm going to get a headache pretty quickly while using them. There're 3 sets of lenses that can be put in place (1 stationary, 1 that flips down from the inside, and 1 that's a single-eye piece that rotates in from the outside for the right eye) that, when all 3 are in use, do 4.8X magnification. Really intense.
I also realized that all of the capacitors and resistors were 2 or more sizes too small compared to what I need. I'll need to order a new batch of all of them. Oh well. I missed a few other things in the order and they aren't super-critical, because I can still test without them. Everything else seems to be in order and I haven't really had a whole lot of time to check stuff out yet.
