As most of the Arduino tinkering makers, I have some NeoPixels LEDs in my drawers. Especially the 8x8 NeoMatrix is a beautiful piece of illumination. But till now, I didn’t have any good use for it yet. Time to make it a bit more useful!
While cleaning up my drawer with my Secret Stash of Ingredients, I stumbled into my beloved NeoMatrix 64 pixel LED board. While this board is an awesome toy for light effects, it could use some added features, like the displaying text. Reason enough to write a NeoMatrix extension for the Adafruit GFX Library.
