  1.   It was cool and it seems to be quite complicated. Actually, I did not get how it works. when you press a key on the keyboard does it show that key? or it shows all the possible characters in the LEDs?

      And it's good that small basic is being taught in schools. I think it should be part of every school's curriculum and as a primary course like Maths and Physics. I think everyone should know some programming in the modern world.

    I think you actually have to update the code to change the display (Data =). But making it interactive would definitely be a big improvement.

  3. User Ed says:

    Agree about getting development taught in schools. In some ways, the future of technology depends on it.

    Thanks Behnam!

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free.

    Thanks Led digital! Yes, it's all about learning programming and helping people get there as easily as possible.

    I think that http://www.dynamo-led-displays.co.uk is one of the best LED dysplay online shops on the Internet. They have an amazing variety of products that you can explore anytime.

  10. User Ed says:

    John, can you make virtual versions of those LEDs using Small Basic?

    Because that's sort of the topic here. You know, being a Small Basic blog and all. =^)
