An Arduino-controlled lightwall using GE Color-Effects lights
C++ C Java


 Lightwall Library
  This code controls a series of GE Color-effects lights.
  It uses Digital pins 0-7 for output.
  A player is included in the examples, which will read specially formatted data files
  from an SD card and display them on the lightwall. See the README in 
  examples/lightwallplayer3/ for more details.

= Installation =
* Copy this entire directory to arduino/libraries/LightWall/ 
* Install the Fat16 library from
    * (Required for example player, not for the core library)
* Done!

= Notes = 
This code has been tested with Arduino 0.22. As of the time of this writing, 
the Fat16 library from MusicShield is not compatible with Arduino 1.0
