AdaVision – DIY 150 LED video wall project pack

Window-50

AdaVision – DIY 150 LED video wall project pack. AdaVision is our biggest project pack ever! For all lovers of LEDs and LED walls, we finally have a project pack for making your very own stand-alone mini-LED wall. This project is designed to work with Processing to display graphics demos, low rez MPEG movies, Processing sketches and animations, or a webcam but of course its all open source and documented so that you can adapt it for your own nefarious & blinky purposes.

Once assembled, the LED wall is 17.7″ wide x 11.8″ tall x 3″ deep with 150 diffused LEDs arranged in a 15×10 matrix. The LEDs connect to a small Arduino-like microcontroller board that does the driving work and provides a USB interface. Any computer with a USB port running Windows, Mac or Linux can drive the wall by sending commands to the microcontroller. We suggest using the open source graphics system Processing and have a bunch of fantastic tutorials and example for using the wall in Processing. Please visit the AdaVision project page for tutorials, instructions, details, software and more!

Each project pack contains:

You will also need to provide the following (not included!)

  • Soldering iron and solder
  • Screwdriver for assembling plastic case
  • ATX power supply with power cable with more than 5V/10A output – available at any computer supply store

We make these packs “to order” sign up to get an email when we have them ready!
