I am working on a project for school and I need to design and machine a cribbage board on a CNC mill. It was required to use pegs like normal cribbage, but being the normal risk taker and electronic geek that I am, I want to replace the pegs with LED's.
one LED per hole(120 holed per player)(3 players)(making 360 holes/LED's
Each player has a couple push buttons that will control the board (move forward/back 1,5 clear... etc)
For me the easy part will be be the player controls and writing the code for them.
I am stumped by the best way to control the 360+ led's that the board will need.The current thought is to multiplex all of the LED's using a series of ATMEGA328's communicating with each-other through SPI. Is there a better way of doing this at a relatively low cost(<$100)?
If so, please share your ideas with me as the more brains at work makes projects more successful!
Thanks all! (If you have any questions, please ask!)
