What is the LoL Shield?
The LoL Shield, Lots of LEDs, is a matrix display of LEDs that allow for you to create text or graphic displays over a 14 x 9 grid of bright white LEDs. The LEDs on this shield can be used for scrolling text, or displaying other information; you can even use it to show off equaliser displays or set a pattern sequence to it to cycle through, all over 126 LEDs.

As a shield, this enables you to attach it to most Arduino related development boards that have the same pin layout. Connect to development boards without the need of jump leads or soldering, maximising the amount of space you have to work with while maintaining a tidy finish.

Arduino shields can also stack on top of each other. This board functions as a top layer shield and does not host stacking pins for further boards or breakouts. Middle layer shields use stacking pins so you can stack on more shields or breakout further.

How can I get the most out of my project?
This shield is best used with the easy to use, quick to edit, LoL Shield Library/Pi-Light Library to get the smoothest result.

If you have an expanding project you may want to consider Middle layer shields, like a proto shield, that can add extra functionality. Just be cautious you’re not attempting to use the same pin twice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good LOL This is a bargain. The manufacturer's website no longer exists, so ignore the few web links supplied. The board is based on a well known design called LOL. Just search for "LOL Arduino" and you'll find all you need on the GitHub site. Download the full master zip file and install the library zip file through the Arduino IDE. Place the led board onto the Arduino carefully aligning the correct pins (they are marked on the board) then try one of the examples which will appear in the IDE for if you have installed the LOL library properly. The tiny leds are bright white. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's full of stars. If you like a lot of blinking leds this is just the thing and really good value if you consider the cost of 128 leds, 128 resistors and the logic chips required to address the individual leds. You may want to get a pair of sunglasses when you try this out as the white leds are really really bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin! Works nicely with the library linked from the ciseco page. Thank you.
