The folks over at Evil Mad Scientist Labs outfitted a Peggy 2 with 2×2 super-pixels consisting of red, green, blue, and white 10mm LEDs. The result is a super low-res, but still extremely cool, programmable LED matrix. Windell also shows how you can put a diffusing plastic over the display to create a continuous-tone animated color display. Trippy, man.
