It is possible to attach simple, monochrome Nokia Cell Phone display to rpi and it displays whole graphics to it.

So is it possible to do the same with custom LED matrix (I mean like 41*15 or more pixels, preferably RGB LEDs)? I'm thinking of sth similar to advertising displays.

  • I would recommend using a solution that is ready made, which can read a graphics file. Because making your own massive array, home brew will be extremely difficult. Like the stuff in my answer. Its really nice. – Piotr Kula May 16 '14 at 15:14

    Just for reference - there also exists a solution of constantly making bitmaps to later be sequentially presented on LED screen makerflux.com/… – Marian Paździoch Jan 26 '16 at 7:56
