The weather. It’s a stereotypical, and very real part, of British conversation, and a classic example of using online information in your programming. Keeping the classic idea in mind, Diego Braga paired the concept with a giant board full of LEDs.
“I had the idea talking with some friends that are always checking the weather forecast,” Diego tells us. “My idea was to create something that could be even [as] good-looking as a piece of furniture, something that reminds of an 8-bit era, but with a simple layout that could fit any wall in any situation.”
What Diego ended up with was a 70×100 cm board, with 1920 RGB LEDS split up over 32 LED strips. Each individual LED is controllable, including what colour it displays as.
