IoT LED matrix


I wanted to have a medium where people from anywhere at any time could control the "art" in my room. Inspired by r/place I set up a 64x64 LED matrix on my desk. This matrix is controlled by an esp8266 microcontroller that gets pixel colour data from this website. Using the interface you may manipulate the colours that I will see (which you can see on a short livestream).

The experiment aims to investigate what sort of patterns (if any) people will send over the open internet for me to see on the physical device next to my laptop. Every ten minutes you have the option to reset the matrix - this will also save the pixels to a database. Let's see what people will create...

Long me out.

There are currently 1288 saved matrices.
