So I have to admit that I am a late comer to the #maker revolution. I literally had no idea that Arduino existed until January 2013. How sad is that? I suppose my family, career, and automotive hobby kept me pretty busy, but still, no excuse given the fact that I grew up on the Vic 20, Apple //c, etc.
Oddly enough, I learned about Arduino from my love of the Raspberry Pi. I suspect most people it is the other way around. I digress...
My first Arduino project was to be a soil sensing automatic plant waterer. Unfortunately, I discovered that the Soil Sensor did not work as I had hoped, and I kind of gave up on it. I thought, I should sell a few Arduino's here and there, but that should be about it.
Enter the Adafruit 16x32 LED matrix. This thing officially blew my mind. Within an hour of unboxing it, I had it up and running using an Arduino Uno. Adafruit has a variety of tutorials on the 16x32, be sure to check them out!
