Playing games on the Dot Matrix Display

The always-inventive Chris Debenham has used our 32x16 LED Dot Matrix Display panels in a very creative way: he's linked them together so that one is up the right way and the other is upside down, and modified the driver library to support inverted displays - all so the cabling would be more convenient when mounting one above the other instead of side by side!

But that was just the start. To really knock our socks off, he then used the resulting enormous 32x32 array (that's 1024 LEDs) as a display for games running on an Arduino, including Snake, Pong, Breakout, and Race. This is amazing:

Wow, nice work Chris! Check out all the details on his blog:
