Crude schematics

I wish I knew some cad software, but I can really just draw, but its really quite simple, the 5V goes to each strip, and from the MKR1000 you get 8 output pins to the right side, and 8 to the left side. they all go to the appropriate strip into the DIN pin, so you put the even strips facing left and the odd strips facing right


Closed code


My code is still quite buggy, and I can’t share it here it, but its basically two components:
* An android app, that takes an image, converts to 60×16, and uploads to the wifi web server
* The arduino code – a simple webserver that gets 60x16x3 values and sends directly to the led strips
//Code to be put here later
