I have an idea for a project, something that i would like but i cant find it avaliable anywhere!
Great ill build it, it should be simple enough
Without giving away all the details here is the basics for my idea.
Up to 100 LEDs individually controlled via a webpage (e.g. button 1-100 turns on the corresponding LED a bit of text under each button and maybe an Image for each)
A website on the device to control the LEDs, local network only 1 user at a time.
Now i have 2 Raspberry pi's which i am using for messing around with at the moment media centre, car pc, mame box etc etc.
If i decided to sell this project afterwards a raspberry pi seems over the top and a little expensive,
Ive looked at arduinos as you can just buy the chip and build a simple circuit around it rather than intergrating the whole board to save on cost. I still need a network add on which would bump the cost up quite a bit? Can i host a website on this?
Or could i use a TI launchpad cost about £10 but again no network?
Whats the best device for something like this? Any help would be much appreciated
