Above is an image from the ‘Diploma Project’ by AndrÃƒÂ© Huber and Roland Broennimann. They are students at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland and Academy of Art and Design. They are working on a project called natebu (or at least that’s the name of the blog). It’s an idea that Bre and I have talked about before, and is pretty impressive to see in action. From what I can tell there are 3 LEDs for each ‘pixel’ that sense when there is something blocking the light and then activates the LEDs. If you watch this video you can see it in action. I couldn’t find any links to the code but they did post the schematic and pcb (pictured below), which although not too complicated, looks pretty time consuming to wire up.
