Arduino Matrix

This a is a prototype for a standalone version of the ‘Asteroids’ Max for Live Arcade device released by Isotonik Studios.

It is currently using Arduino to drive the 8×8 LED matrix with a backpack that takes care of the multiplexing required for the columns and rows. The Max for Live device sends data in the form of arrays over a serial connection to the Arduino. The end goal is to have more of the processing which is currently taking place in Max, ported over to the Arduino so that it can be a standalone system capable of sending MIDI out to external instruments.
