DIY Bike Taillights

With 2×8 arrays of LEDs you can create your own Bike twilight similar to the project posted here by justDIY. Its a one week job for you to build your wonderful creation. Wide options are available to make your project attractive like: you can add some automatic control circuitry, painting the circuit boards, masking off each LED lens […]

DIY Pocket binary Alarm Clock

Binary Alarm Clock provides an original and innovative method of displaying the accurate time. Instructables member linux-dude shared his compact binary alarm clock that uses an Arduino Duemilanove (which fits perfectly in the tin) to keep time and control the indicator LEDs. The LEDs are arranged in two rows as you would expect, representing hours and […]

512 RGB pixels based LED panel

Adafruit brings out 512 bright RGB LEDs based panels arranged in a 16X32 grids fashion.  This product is superb product to be used to display animations or short video clips. These displays are designed to be driven by FPGA, CPLD, Propeller, XMOS or other high speed multi-processor controller. The good news is that the display […]

DIY LED based Analog clock

Hackedgadgets member Alan Parekh shared various versions of LED based Analog clock. You can build your own analog clock using the following materials: One homemade clock uses a PIC16F877 Microcontroller with a 20MHz clock, it also has a DS1307 real time clock with battery backup. 169 x 700mcd diffused white LED’s connected in a matrix […]

Voltage-controlled RGB generator

Enide member shared an amazing project of designing one simple RGB color generator. With the power of PIC12F675 microcontroller you too can build your own circuit that generates many colors using a RGB LED. The basic concept of the project can be viewed here. The working principle that governs this project is : “Two independent […]

Motion triggered LED matrix display

If you are planning to implement any electronic moving display system that is activated by movements in its surroundings then just have a look on the project posted by Jer from Volts and Bytes, where an Atmega8 is used to activate a Sure Electronics 0832 LED matrix display when motion is detected by the attached PIR sensor. Check the link […]
