I have tried to quickly write this up and post a you tube link.
Im hoping MM will add neohex to the commands for esp8266basic
This is a work in progress, a 16x16 grid of neopixels displaying pixel art that is stored on the flash of the esp8266. By adding a new command in arduino to espbasic, the end result is pretty good animation.
The grids can be brought on ebay for under $50 US,
I have added a few more commands to draw lines on it, so I can have a clock display also, and would like to add some text commands Ill upload these when they work ..
