That is really cool! I'm glad the tutorial helped and I can see from the video that you managed to modify the code yourself to make a different scanning effect. :)

That is cool. I didn't look at anything in the background and was too busy focusing on the car.

I thought, "Dang, what a nice car!". I was also wondering if you own a company that does car mods. Then a great big hand came and picked up the body :shock: ... needless to say, I felt pretty stupid!

Great job by the way! :D

Thanks very much for posting - I tried to open the code but it seemed to be a broken link.

Are you able to upload again?

Never mind, it seems that the download links have all been broken - looks like I have to go and fix the problem!

Now the images are loading, I had a look at your schematic and noticed you didn't have any resistors in series with your LEDs. Even though you are only running the circuit with 3V, the forward voltage drop of red LED's is normally somewhere around 2v. This means the rest will be dropped within the micro controller port pins and can (possibly) cause undesired results.

Just my tip for the day!
