Adventures with Arduino Part 20

First experiments with the LED Matrix module are going well.  I have copied the LED matrix reference from the source code to a new file.  This makes it easier to copy / paste lines for individual letters to the code in the Arduino IDE.

At present it is displaying HAPPY HALLOWEEN.  The problem here is that where there are two consecutive letters the same,  you don’t see a change, they just stay on longer, so I added a space in between them.   This is a bit of a hack fix but it works.

I will look in to doing something more exciting for the next jam.  In the meantime here is a short video.

For reference the link to the project code (well the original code) can be found at the link below:-
