RGB led remote pixel FrontPage

Pixel project

Features:

  • individually-addressable red/green/blue leds with 8-bit PWM brightness control
  • each pixel is under $5
  • pixels can be spaced apart and require only 2 wires chaining them together (or maybe 3)
  • possible compatibility with 1wire, allowing other devices to share the bus

Challenges:

  • Sending data with lots of power, possibly continuous power.
  • Reflecting LEDs to the right shape, and with complete mixing of the colors

Hardware sources:

Still looking for:

  • good comparison of LED brightnesses to common home and theater fixtures
  • a 1wire driver that sends lots of power (several amps)
