Each tile has a microprocesser inside that controls the LEDs.

Hardware: a processor (NodeMCU - based on ESP8266, or Microbit), one micro-processor per tile.

Software required: microBlocks - installed on your computer.

Other useful items for creating tiles.

  • Multiple LEDs, I use LEDs that are prewired with a resistor for LED protection.
  • Battery box compatible with microprocessor : 3 x AA batteries for NodeMCU or 3xAAA for Microbit
  • Terminal Connector Blocks are useful for making simple circuits
  • Crocodile clips for connecting circuits.
  • box or other container to create your tile
  • Felt or other material to decorate it.
