@ tomm
Oh, that makes sense.

@CrossRoads

So would a 74HC595 work?

the "cogs" are only necessary if you're using smd leds.
In my project I'm using an octagon of led bargraphs
It should look similar to this mock up I made. (http://post.monome.org/?PostBackAction=Download&AttachmentID=4479)

unless anyone has seen an eight-segmented led bargraph then I will use ten-segmented one s and just not use the first and last leds on each unit.

would this do for what I need?

I'm looking to build a monome ARC clone (http://monome.org/)

and I don't quite know how I will drive the leds. it's 64 leds per knob and the should be able to fade.

any suggestions?

I got the eleventh doctor's sonic for me, I also got the tenth doctor's sonic for my brother for his birthday.

Actually if I recall the tenth doctor's sonic is not just a toy but a pen that writes in invisible ink only revealed by the uv led at the opposite end.
Whereas the other is just a toy and would be able to hold the micro tvbgone quite nicely.

Hey! I'm new to this forum so I appologize if this is on the wrong board but here's my idea:
     I'm a huge doctor who fan and I would like to build a replica of the docotor's sonic screwdriver. But instead of making a prop that just blinks and makes noise, at first I thought that I should just add a bit of tvbgone magic to it. But then I thought what if I created a system of infrared emiters and receivers intagrated into locks and such. The problem is that I don't know where to begin. Of coarse I will begin by building the prop,  but from there I don't have the slightest clue as to where to go.

(Any suggestions are wellcome, and if I am on the wrong board feel free to tell me).

Thanks,
earthquake
