An Arduino Mega is used to control a large (40 inch x 20 inch) color LED display with scrolling text. Software is provided for demos.

After seeing the large number of views my recent project (Servo Motor Art) got, I decided I probably should share some of my other Arduino based projects. The one I am presenting here is a flat panel LED display that is quite easy to build (although not particularly inexpensive). The main challenges in this project is developing the software, but I am providing a whole bunch of it that I have been developing over the past few years.

The nice thing about this project is that you can do so many things with it once it’s built. The opening photo is of the panel displaying a maze and the solution it has found to escape the maze. This is just one of several programs I am presenting here. Here is a video showing the maze generator/solver in action (sorry about the video artifacts):”
