I ran across: https://forum.arduino.cc/?topic=627415#msg4248892
but no long is it able to be replied to.
I wanted to see if anyone else has attempted this? and if not, what suggestions others may have in terms of doing the project. I am planning on starting down the long path of attempting. I have not bought anything yet so I can get anything that is recommended.
An example for just the lights is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OP-oEbzB6g
The goal would be to make say 24 "boxes" of LEDs ( say 4 LEDs in each). Each box is able to be controller individually and connect to the box next to it. If each box could include a separate and cheap board of some sort I am game for that.
And then the next step would be to detect touches on the individual boxes and react to that.
I have dont some LED projects, as well as touch. But never to this scale. I can think of ways to do it with TONS of wiring and several boards but am not skilled enough to know how one would do it the cleanest and streamlined way.
What different prices of hardware brought together would make this work ?
I was looking to see if there was a "smart" way to control MANY of these from a single ardunio? https://www.adafruit.com/product/4600?gclid=Cj0KCQiAzsz-BRCCARIsANotFgNYZuu9IXaNQboR7dcnxIk1cPjHg5iQPpA7xkMUs8_s52Is5F9Y8mwaAsrzEALw_wcB )
Sorry for my nubie way of asking all this. And thanks for any insight.
