In the Maker Shed: LoL Shield

Lol Shield
The LoL (Lots of LEDs) Shield is a charlieplexed LED matrix for the Arduino. The LEDs are individually addressable, so you can use it to display anything in a 9×14 grid. Scroll text, play games, display images, or anything else you want to do. The LoL Shield is available in green, red, and blue (white is currently sold out.) The provided library makes getting it up and running a snap. Please note, this is a shield and requires an Arduino for control.
