I ordered a Blinkt as an afterthought during a recent parts order, but I am having such fun with it. My first thought was, “damn, that’s bright!”. One of my other hobbies is cinematography, and I started playing with an old lens I had from a viewfinder shade, and what do you know, it focuses the blinkt perfectly across the room. Too well, in fact–I had to put some diffusion filter in front of the LEDs to make the individual colours blend properly. I now have 8 four-inch colour “spheres” on my wall.
So, now I am wondering if I can do something similar with one of the matrix dislpays, either a Scroll Phat HD or the Unicorn HD. I can’t seem to find details on the actual LED components in either of these or (all that really matters) the relative brightness of these compared to the Blinkt. Can anybody help with that so I can decide which to turn into a projector?
