PeggyDraw is an app that lets you draw images on your computer that you want to display in lights on your EMS Labs Peggy 2. Windell is busy working on a revamp of the program. It’s almost here. In the meantime, Mark Delp created a little program called bmp2peg (added to the Peggy project at Google Code). It converts BMP image files into Arduino Sketches. Above is a drawing of a pumpkin, created in bmp2peg, and sent to a Peggy 2 outfitted with orange LEDs.
