tired of hi-def? (booo!!!)

here’s how to convert otherwise reasonable quality video into pixelated garbage and play it on a 2 color 8×8 led matrix, with no sound and only moderate sync.

– (1) 8×8 2 color led matrix
– (1) atmel avr atmega168
– (2) 74hc595 shift register
– (1) 3.3V regulator
– (1) bunch of linux software

this is a mid level avr project, in that it assumes ( does not explain ) how to get a program onto a chip. it’s pretty easy once you’ve done it though, so don’t worry.
