MxLight64 is a 8x8 MatriX Light consisting of 64 LEDs.
The goal was to create a simple light, that could be assembled fast using cheap materials, so that you can have many of them. I use them mainly in an orchestrated way using DMX over E1.31 (sACN) in combination with QLC+.
Bill of Materials
- 8x8 WS2812b matrix
- Wemos D1 mini
- candle holder that I found (main body)
- LEGOs (LED frame)
- micro USB power cable
- sandwich paper
solder 5V, GND and Din to the Wemos D1 mini and plug in USB power
build a frame that can hold the LED matrix
put it in and lock it in place
flash firmware, configure and test
put the frame in the candle housing
wrap it using the sandwich paper
IKEA ORDNING also fits
as well as those old white disposable plastic 0.5L cups upside down.
