is it possible to display text / gifs / bmps direct from a pc using the usb lead ? Any examples that can be referenced?
You can use the Aurora sketch on the Teensy and some streaming software on the PC:
A more advanced option is to use the SmartMatrix port of Fadecandy:
I’ll have to check them both out
Hi I use the Aurora repo and Aurora Web Server Application repo from jasoncoon
Connect the matrix via USB an over the web browser you can control the matrix change pattern, type in text and send gifts to it
