here’s how to convert otherwise reasonable quality video into pixelated garbage and play it on a 2 color 8×8 led matrix, with no sound and only moderate sync.
– (1) 8×8 2 color led matrix
– (1) atmel avr atmega168
– (2) 74hc595 shift register
– (1) 3.3V regulator
– (1) bunch of linux software
this is a mid level avr project, in that it assumes ( does not explain ) how to get a program onto a chip. it’s pretty easy once you’ve done it though, so don’t worry.” – Link.

Anybody want to create a real schematic from the guys drawings. I’d like to give this a shot, but I’m not understanding the whole circuit.
Heres a quick schematic: http://host.atomicfire.net/files/42/futurama_led.zip
I’m not sure how the LED matrix is layed out, and I didnt find a suitable part. So I just copied his pinout and used headers.
