A little while ago we posted about a fun LED scroller project made by Hackszine pal Kalanda. He wrote in today with an update about his latest howto project, a multi-color animated LED controller based on the AVR platform.

The new project based in AVR microcontrollers Its an “Habitat Mirror Hack” with RGB Leds (superflux). Its the Peggy Muppets Mirror.

I replace the regular bulbs that it has, with superflux RGB leds and i make a controller based on ATMEGA8 for control 16 rgb leds with 3 bits of color depth (8 colors). In my post you can download scheme, pcb and source code.

It looks like a fun project, and you could adapt it for other uses pretty easily. His site is in Spanish, and though I’d normally like to a Google Translate version, unfortunately Translate isn’t converting the entire post, only the first paragraph. To get the full details, you’ll have to cut and paste the text into Translate manually.

Thanks, Kalanda!
