Everyone loves a colorful LED screen! Our 16x32 RGB LED display is a low cost, and easy-to-use arrangement of bright LEDs - just like the ones used in Times Square! This display makes a fantastic addition to your Raspberry Pi. It is pretty easy to wire up, but the display is quite demanding when it comes to getting it to display something...luckily this tutorial has all the code you need to get blinky
This tutorial is based on this one by Henner Zeller but as well as using Henner's C code to drive the display, we will also experiment (with limited success) in driving the display using Python.
