Description How To More Details

The LoL Shield for Arduino is a charlieplexed LED matrix for the Arduino. The LEDs are individually addressable, so you can use it to display anything in a 9◊14 grid. Scroll text, play games, display images, or anything else you want to do. Please note, this is a shield and requires an Arduino for control.

Please add $5 for White or Blue LEDs

Doesn't work with v1.0 environment December 15, 2011
Reviewer: Jim Cook from Agawam, MA United States  
I assembled LOL shield v1.5 in red. Nice quality PC board. If you assemble one, make sure you view the video that explains how to streighten the LED's, it works well.
I'm running an Arduino UNO, environment v1.0 and after loading the library it gives a "charlieplex" error. As I understand from many comments the LOL shield doesn't work with the latest versions. That's why the single star rating.

I went back to IDE 0023 and with help from fellows on the Arduino corrected how I downloaded the program. It is working very well. It's fantastic! I will re-try using IDE v1.0 later.

Love the Lol Shield! June 7, 2011
Reviewer: falldeaf from Port Saint Lucie, FL United States  
I love doing projects with blinky LED displays and this is a great way to do it easily with an Arduino. My only complaint initially was that the spreadsheet method of making animations was a little unwieldy. That led me to building a web app that anyone can use to make animatons.

It's also free for anyone to use, try it out if you like :)

LOLs with LoL Shield February 1, 2011
Reviewer: Mark Anderson from Ratoath, Meath Ireland  
When soldered in correctly this is a brilliant little shield that is limited only by your what you can do with 126 LEDs.

I went from scrolling text to playing games and am still finding new ways to have fun with it.

Word of warning though, make sure you cover your arduino's usb port with electrical tape or it will short out.

All in all its brilliant

Excellent Level Grinding for Soldering September 7, 2010
Reviewer: Chris Behrens from Kennedale, TX United States  
The entire kit can be assembled in several hours. All instructions are online, with a couple of very helpful videos.

I was nervous about the headers, but they turned out to be the easiest part.

After the last LED was completed, we booted it up and found a few LEDs not lighting properly, and others lighting up improperly. Starting from the corner that the test script lights up first, we touched up the soldering for six LEDs, and it worked perfectly.

There is a little bit of ghosting on some LEDs when certain ones are lit, but this is unavoidable with Arduino and Charlieplexing.

Review July 15, 2010
Reviewer: Angelo Luchetti from Pennsylvania  
This kit is a very good kit. I built it, then tested it with an example sketch.  Some leds were that weren't supposted to be.  I went to the website on the pcb from the kit and found the problem.  The contacts from some led were shorted out by the usb port.  This was fixed with eletrical tape.  Overall, except the usb problem, this is a great kit, worth the money!
