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.

There is a certain amount of celebration in order!

I cobbled this up last night. The color mixing is absolutely horrid, because this movie was taken upside down (the wall is sitting on sawhorses, backside up) and the LEDs are just hanging in the pixels. I haven't glued them down yet, because I wanted to make sure everything still worked.
I tested to make sure all the individual colors still worked, and I tested first with the starter kit board then my own board, and I'm quite happy to report that it still works.

I still have to figure out how to connect the TWI bus to all 6 boards (it's pretty trivial to connect to 1 board, but I don't have TWI outputs on the driver boards... oops). Perhaps I can use another 8-position terminal block. It seems a bit overkill, but whatever works in the end, I guess.

blinky! very blinky, and cool.

Why don't you use a 10- or 16-position terminal block, just to be on the safe side. ;-)
