"Colossus Micro" is an animated light display in a portable size. It uses a "P5" LED panel that is controlled by a Raspberry Pi Zero W. Here are its features:
Convenient size (12 x 6")
Full color, high resolution LED display (2,048 pixels)
Great for a tabletop display for trade/craft shows, displaying eye catching information, and anywhere that benefits from a bright, colorful display
Wifi controllable from your smart phone or laptop (built-in wifi "hotspot")
Battery powered using an internal rechargeable battery (also runs from a wall outlet)
Displays static text/graphics, moving text, and animations
Animations and graphics created on your laptop/computer with xLights, then uploaded wirelessly to the display
Self contained (via included mounting bracket and cover)
Easy to assemble (minimal soldering)
Full instructions for how to build this:
Note: There are two versions of the Raspberry Pi Zero W sled. If the original version does not fit on the P5 panel because of a capacitor in the way, print and use the "alternate" version of the sled instead. Thanks to Darrell of Crocket Fantasy of Lights for providing this alternate version!
Note 2: If you downloaded the original "p5_panel_frame_battery_side.stl" when this Thingiverse was originally posted, it is missing three "nut slots"! Please download the file again (it has been fixed).
