I have an arduino and I want to control 16 leds. How do i do that? Answered

I'm just starting with arduino and i dont know much. I was thinking about multiplexing but it seems to be used for more complex things.

What arduino do you have? If you have the mega you can just connect all the LEDs to 16 different digital outputs on the Arduino and you can control them independently!

If you can, use the various Arduino forums to find instructions for using 74HC595's to drive LEDs
