LED Wall of awesome nearly funded!

by Dan Royer

Several weeks ago our wonderful wall of LEDs returned to it’s Burning Man owners. It was 10×42 pixels and loved by all.

To replace it I’m running my third VHS funding drive. (The first was an 3D printer filament group buy, the second was the group quadcopter buy with Jon G.)

Every $30 will pay for one 8×8 panel of LEDs and a power supply. Just like the old wall it will be totally programmable through the Raspberry Pi. When the parts arrive I will host a group build party for all donors at VHS. Come decorate and assemble your panel in an afternoon of fun. Rainbows everywhere!

See two new panels

I’m also accepting $60 order of one-for-vhs-and-one-for-you. Take what you learn home and apply it to your next project. Burning Man? BITF? Bike Rave? Work less party? Halloween? So many good reasons! Please make clear this is what you want or I will assume you are donating two panels.

Minimum Goal

The minimum goal is to get 6×2 panels ($360) for a new wall that’s 48×16 LEDs.
Achieved 2014-07-08

Stretch Goals

If we get more donors than needed we’ll put the pixels closer together for a more detailed picture.
6×3 panels ($540)
12×2 panels ($720)
12×3 panels ($1080)
12×4 panels ($1440)

This funding drive will end 2014-07-21.
