I am looking to create a scrolling LED ticker tape for my new apartment as a project, and I am looking for general advice/guidance before I begin.
My thought is to have a few LED panels hooked together so that during market hours, real time stock info would be displayed, but during non-market hours, just date, weather, and time would be displayed. Having never done anything like this before, I have a few questions:
- Is this possible?
- Which Arduino would be best to use? I have read about the Yun some, and it seems like that may be the way to go.
- Am I getting in over my head? How difficult is pulling real time data from a website (yahoo finance, weather.com, etc.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
