Fabien Royer and Bertrand Le Roy wrote in to let us know about their latest creation, an RGB video wall made with a Netduino Mini and an Adafruit LED strip:

What’s not to like about RGB LEDs? With their bright, mesmerizing glow, often capable of displaying millions of colors, they’re a great to way to catch the attention of the viewer. Now, what if you had a 5 meter long RGB LED strip, loaded with 160 RGB LEDs to play with? Oh, the possibilities… It so happens that Adafruit, in their infinite wisdom, carries a very nice RGB LED strip, powered by a LPD8806 driver and encased in a waterproof sleeve.

What about turning it into a mini video wall for instance? Think ‘Times Square’, just smaller :)

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
