64 RGB LED Table Project – Wow.

Hacked Gadgets user Edo from Germany made this pretty fantastic RGB LED table using 5mm RGB LEDs and some Arduino microcontrollers.  He has some fading color sequences, some equalizer bar sequences, and perhaps my favorite FX – the table responds to acceleration.  When you tip it one way or another, it responds.  Edo, you officially rock.

Edo speaks on Hacked Gadgets:

“My name is Edo, I am a 23 years old from Hamburg Germany and I’m studying computer science at the Hamburg university of applied science. I used one Arduino Duemilinove to control 12 TLC5940 Chips. There is is one 5mm RGB LED in each of the 64 sections. The dimensions of the Table are 50×50×12 centimeters The cladding is made of self brushed aluminum. In the future I’d like to take an Arduino BT to program the table wirelessly.”

I can’t wait to see what you come up with next, brother.  Check out these videos of Edo’s work – it’s good stuff!

  1. Hi,

    I adore your table! I’d like to attempt to build something similar yet probably not as amazing as yours. I want to get the same Texas Instruments chips but having a hard time telling the difference between the TLC5940LN and the TLC5940LNG4 do you know?I think the LN is most likely the size you used but I can’t figure out what the G4 extension means.

    A million thank yous,
