Above is an image from the ‘Diploma Project’ by André 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.

  1. This is a great looking project. We should all email him and tell him to post the code!
