Prototype Success

The LED space invader prototype worked, with only 9 LED burning out. I must have crossed a wire while testing power supplies… Although the original plan was to use 12 volts, I’ve found 6 works best. I’ll post video and new images soon.

In the mean time the prototype has given me an idea for a series of invaders. These will use fewer LEDs, less power and eliminate the proto board so that the LEDs and wiring are visible. Visible Invaders, if you will. In preparing for this next series I’ve done a few animation tests to see how a collection of new characters will look.
