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.

Slow week

Yeah, yeah... sorry about no updates. This week has been a little busy for me and I didn't have a whole lot of time to work on anything until today.

LED Triplets
I've finished the batch of 14 I was working on, so now I'm up to 30 of 240 done (12.5%).

Now that I have at least 20 LED wire segments, I'm going to stop working on construction and soldering for a bit. I need to verify that the TWI and the driver boards work correctly. The boards each have 4 driver chips and each driver chip can drive 5 pixels, so that gives me 20 pixels per driver board.
So all of my work for a while will be coding and wire crimping (not a whole lot of this).

Once I get the communication working properly, then I can continue on with everything else.
Hopefully, there won't be any major snags. I am prepared for one or more of the chips and/or boards not working properly, but if none of them work, then I'm going to have a lot of testing and re-engineering to do.

If all goes well, I'll have some nice, pretty movies of everything working properly in a week.
