 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.
