So, now I have a box that keeps an eye out for me... not very useful, I agree. However, I had fun making it and if I ever have something more useful I can do with an 16x16 LED display in a box, I can, as I have the code to control it now. Speaking of code, feel free to download my hacky work here. Hope you enjoyed and stay safe.

Ikea now has a NEW product. It's called Frekvens. There's the LED matrix and a blinky light module. Not sure of others. Probably twice the price now.

Nice project. I have a teensy 4 hooked up to the Ledcube and trying out some simple demos, my programm skills are very rusty and i wondered if you can give your 2cents if it would be an easy task to use your display driver code to integrate in the Arduino FastLED library as a driver for that board. i know it's 1color/grayscale only but it should be possible to map the rgb the grayscale instead?

Could you somehow stack 12 together with one camera in the middle box? Creating a larger screen.

Wow! First of all, congratulations, nice project, beautiful hack and a well written post!! What a perfect combination! As @Yonatan said below, it reminds the Big Brother, so I thought it would look very nice if you made a second one, with the eye mirrored, and put them both on a bookshelf or on the wall, as if the books or the house was keeping track of you. Probably a bunch of extra work, bit maybe use the communication capabilities of the ESP to sync the eyes a little, just enough to not let them get cross-eyed.

WOuld be cool to mod this so it acts as a e1.162 node for something like xlights... Could be amazing,.

Very impressive and at most, creative. Reminds me of Big Brother...

You are definitely a genius, a hacky genius
