Over the past few days I’ve hacked together a little Arduino with a LED display panel. It looks pretty cool!

This little Arduino checks the Envato API every 2 minutes for any new sales. If it finds a new sale it will BEEP then show the name of the item just sold. It then calculates what you have earnt today and counts up to that value.

Here’s a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBwYJW_38JY

For those interested in building this: the DMD ’s are available here (you can connect them together to make a larger display) and the Arduino used here is an EtherTen (any network enabled arduino will do) and this is all powered by a PoE injector (so you only have to run a single network cable to wherever the unit is mounted).

Can post the C code if anyone is interested. I’m pretty bad at C though :P

EDIT : this is over on notes as well: http://notes.envato.com/authors/check-out-the-arduino-sales-notification-system/
