Internet-connected Dot Matrix Displays

 The team at "Three's a crowd" design house relaunched their website today, and as a demonstration of their hardware and software prowess  - connected four Freetronics Dot Matrix Display units together with an EtherTen and enabled messages to be displayed via a form on the website. Although it's a fun project there's also many more serious applications for such a design. Furthermore there's (currently) a live stream so you can see the results yourself - for example:

You can try it yourself by visiting their website. Kudos to "Three's a Crowd" for their fascinating project and sharing it with us. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
