Build seven segment LED digit called “pxlDigit” from WS2812 LEDs

For another project I urgently needed a relatively large number to indicate a duration. From this this small “sub-project” emerged. Because with the 3D printed frame described here and a couple of WS2812 LEDs you can easily build a seven-segment number (or several) and use it to build displays to show numbers.

Over time, I noticed that these types of digits are suitable for all kinds of projects. For example, I’ve already used it to build a clock.

Maybe you also have a new use for it. I’m curious what comes to your mind. Then please leave me a comment. 🙂

How you build such a number is described in the following article.”
