Introduction: Gravity LED Matrix

Genuino 101 is a development board made by intel.It has the same peripheral list as the UNO.A special model in this board is a 6-axis accelerometer/gyro.In this project ,I used the 3-axis accelerometer to determine the orientation of the board.Then controlled the 8*8 led matrix.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

For this project,We need a Genuino 101 board,a 8*8 led matrix,jumper wire pin-5.


Step 2: Circuits

Connected the circuit as shown in the picture.This led matrix was
connected with a serial input/out-put common-cathode display driver(MAX7219).So I just used 3 pins to control led matrix.

VCC → 5V

GND → GND

DIN → 2

CS → 3

CLK → 4

Step 3: Code

There are two programming softwares for this project.One is arduino IDE,the other one is a graphical programming software named mixly.Both code files was attached.You can download the file you want.

    There is a open source software named mixly.So many students use it in China.

    Hey! Where did you bought your 8x8 matrix? And can you send me a link? I would appreciate that. Thanks :)

    I bought it from www.taobao.com.I'm not sure you can buy it.

    I bought mine at Jaycar

    I DON"T HAVE A GENUINO BOARD!!!!

    Great idea. Very useful to level out my little camper van. I'll keep that in my for my winter project list. Tha

    thanks for sharing. give the video.
