Is this Teensy 2.0 a good board to get? or would I be better off with the Arduino Uno - R3
I feel these Digital addressable LED Strips would be much cleaner then the strands of LED pixels.
Would the Arduino Uno - R3 and the Digital addressable LED Strips be my best bet?
The problem with a strip is that you're fixed to the strip's pixels per inch. With a strand, you can position the LEDs at the distance you want. I'm not sure what you mean with a "strand of LED pixels", because these are also digitally addressable to my knowledge. The most well known is (I think) the one sold by Adafruit
with the WS2801 chip integrated.
The UNO will do the job no problem.
I'm not able to compile boblight on my Ubuntu 11.11 64-bit AMD hardware.
I followed the guide in the start post, but after wgetting and configuring boblight and do:
I get this:
make: Entering directory `/tmp/boblight-read-only'

Anybody knows what's going wrong here?
schumi2004 had the same problem here
, but I always like to have the most up to date software. Whats causing this problem?
