Look, it’s a Peggy-o-Lantern

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.
