I have been thinking of making a display like this for a few years and after seeing the Marquee LED Display on slashdot.org I finally had a nice starting point.
The idea was to create a display that will play one of my favored games Tetris. I went with a 10x16 grid for my display. The reason for this is it would leave me with 2 pins free for future add-ons to the program.
Stuff need for project:
First successful test of the display and display driver
Tetris code now working with the display
Nerdkit moved on to project board with display
