As part of a netduino hacking tutorial that I’m authoring with my friend Bertrand, I wrote a set of classes designed to drive an 8×8 LED matrix relying on persistence of vision.

This project shows how to build a 5×8 LED matrix controlled by Arduino and placed on a Jacket. View details on the link below.

Recently, I tested the 0832 LED Matrix Board that I purchased from Sure Electronics. Since I have a simple AVR microcontroller breakout board and a PIR sensor that senses motion, I decided to make something fun using the 0832 LED Matrix Board.

The LoL Shield for Arduino is a charlieplexed LED matrix for the Arduino. All the LEDs are individually addressable, so you can use it to display anything in a 9×14 grid. Scroll text, play games, display images, or whatever else you want with the Lots of LEDs shield.

J Bremnant used two 16×24 led matrix boards and wrote code to make them display information of trading environment. He wanted to make something flexible that can make the best out of LED. He not only wanted scrolling text messages, but render monochrome animations and images through it. To drive the display he used Teensy 2.0 and the code is under 8K as graphics are manipulated on PC.

This project is a 8×8 LED matrix controlled by an Arduino using 4 shift registers. The shift registers are 8-bit wide and are easily interfaced with the SPI protocol. Pulse width modulation is used to mix the colors.

This project is a great little LED portable game system based on PIC16F628A. It is equipped with a 4×4 LED matrix, a PIC microcontroller, 9 bipolar transistors, 4 buttons for control and one switch to power on. It is also has a small speaker to generate game sound. It is powered from 4 Ni-MH batteries. Check this instructable on the link below. So far it has only three games programed.
