Beam by Hover Labs
Beam is a beautiful LED matrix — 120 LEDs that displays scrolling text, animations, or custom lighting effects. Use Beam to build a connected notification center or bike light with your own animations. It’s perfect interface for your next project. Compatible with Arduino, Particle and more.
An ultra-slim display for any project. Simply plug in wires into the side connectors and you’re ready to go. No breadboard required. The super-bright LEDs can shine through any translucent material. Upgrade your projects from basic seven-segment displays and take them to the next level.
Beams can be daisy chained easily — up to four Beams in a row. Go from a single 5 x 24 grid to a 5 x 96 grid of 480 LEDs. Dual side connectors lets you easily snap together beams without any soldering.
Beam makes it very simple to display text or animations with just a single line. You can build an IFTTT connected notification center, a ticker tape, a bike light and more.
