25 RGB LEDs!

Well, it's time for another update! As I explained earlier, my plan is to eventually have RGB LEDs stuck to a large piece of cloth (maybe 2.5x2.5 meters), and being able to fold these pieces of cloth for easy transportation. Since this requires a bit more work, and getting the right cloth etc., I decided to first make a smaller 5x5 LED panel. I found a magnetic board hanging on my wall and decided it looked nice and square. After doing some measurements and drawing crosses, I placed my small LED circuit boards on the board. The result looked like this:

After many hours of soldering the circuit boards, stripping ribbon cables, attaching connectors, and of course a lot of tape, I got my board to look like this:

I have to agree, the tape does not make it look any prettier. Especially since the nice transparent cello tape ran out and I had to use that non-transparent type of tape half-way through. The back of the board has the LED driver boards attached, connecting nicely to the LEDs using IDC connectors:

Finally, a video of the 25 RGB LEDs working wonderfully:

RGB LED Display Update

I just came back from my friend Noel who has helped me a lot to get the PCB making process work perfectly each time. I have completely redesigned the board, and etched a total of 5 of these boards. I am going to solder them and provide another update here. After that, I can run 25 RGB LEDs :), one step closer to my goal of 100!

Any questions can always be sent to me at sebs90_at_gmail_dot*com

LED Display Part 1

This is my first post about my RGB LED display. It has been designed and built completely from scratch and allows for dimming of RGB LEDs.

Currently there are only 5 RGB LEDs, but this will expand to at least 100 RGB LEDs in the near future, as I get more circuit boards done. Some photos follow as well as a Youtube video:

Toronto 2008

On the 26th of June 2008 I went to Toronto, Canada with my father. When we got there we both felt pretty tired so after we went to a bar and had a drink we went to sleep in our hotel. The next day we made a reservation to have dinner at the CN Tower, which was the world's tallest free-standing structure until 2007. It stands 553 meters tall!

When we reached the restaurant after a 60 second elevator ride (fun fact: it takes 9 seconds to reach the ground if you were to jump from this height) we were greeted with an amazing view:

Here I am with a big smile :)

After the amazing and delicious food I took a walk on the glass floor. I was hesitant at first, but when I took the plunge (not literally) I was greeted by an amazing sight:

Once back on the ground, some people were shouting "Tickets to the game!" and so we decided to watch the baseball game between the Atlanta Braves and the Toronto Blue Jays.

On our last day we went to the Niagara Falls which was simply amazing!

We didn't have a lot of time though since we had to go back to Amsterdam.
