IOIOMint or Droidalyzer IOIO Board
RGB Shield for IOIOMint Board - coming shortly from Seeedstudio
IR Proximity Sensor
32x32 RGB LED Matrix - coming shortly from Seeedstudio or 16x32 RGB LED Matrix from Adafruit
Android Apps Written for this Project (Free)
5VDC (4A) Power Supply
The Android device is talking to the IOIO board over Bluetooth. The IOIO board is then controlling the LED matrix (over 1,000 RGB LEDs).
Using the Android apps written for this project, it's very easy to customize with your own images and animations by simply copying your files to the SD card/internal storage of your Android device, no coding is required.
Special thanks to Ytai Ben-Tsvi , creator of the IOIO board, for all of his help on the project. Ytai wrote the custom firmware & corresponding Android API that allows the IOIO board to control the RGB LED Matrix.
Step 1: Wiring and RGB LED Matrix Shield
1. Plug the RGB LED Matrix shield into the IOIOMint or Droidalyzer IOIO board
2. Plug the IDC cable from the matrix into the shield
3. Plug the power cables from the LED matrix shield into the power terminal blocks on the RGB LED Matrix shield
4. Plug the Grove proximity sensor into the first Grove module on the RGB LED Matrix shield
