A little while ago we posted about a fun LED scroller project made by Hackszine pal Kalanda. He wrote in today with an update about his latest howto project, a multi-color animated LED controller based on the AVR platform.
The new project based in AVR microcontrollers Its an “Habitat Mirror Hack” with RGB Leds (superflux). Its the Peggy Muppets Mirror.
I replace the regular bulbs that it has, with superflux RGB leds and i make a controller based on ATMEGA8 for control 16 rgb leds with 3 bits of color depth (8 colors). In my post you can download scheme, pcb and source code.
It looks like a fun project, and you could adapt it for other uses pretty easily. His site is in Spanish, and though I’d normally like to a Google Translate version, unfortunately Translate isn’t converting the entire post, only the first paragraph. To get the full details, you’ll have to cut and paste the text into Translate manually.
