Game of life on dot-matrix
First of all I wish you an inspiring and creative 2009!
The remainder of this post is about the Dot matrix LED display. This ‘game of life’ simulation is running in Processing, communicating via serial port to an ATmega32 controller which controls two LED dot matrixes. The displays were on sale at baco-army-goods, and had a previous life at a bus station. See it move… on youtube. After I got this idea and build it… well, you’ve got these links on youtube and google… obviously somebody else must have done a similar thing… (and yes, look at adafruit where you can even buy a kit). Oh well..
