LED Sensing Matrix

Interactive Display that Responds to Light and Shadow

Light emitting diodes are supposed to do just that -- emit light. But what happens when we apply some clever circuitry, and configure them to detect light instead?

The result is the LED Sensing Matrix. Pass your hand over it and watch the display light up underneath. Play a game of Pong using lights and shadows. Reprogram it for your own purposes. Lots of possibilities!

Check out the Arduino-powered prototype here.
