  • As an art project I am looking to make a led message scroller that scrolls a message around a circle that is around 40cm in diameter. This scroller would have 230 x 7 leds, a total of 1610. It would scroll a set message which would go around anticlockwise without beginning or end. Here is a sketch:

    I know a bit a microcontrollers but this project is way beyond me…Any help or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    I know a bit a microcontrollers and would have no problem making the led array but to control them I dont seem to be finding the right controller….Any help or pointers in the right direction from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
