What you need Step 2 of 5
Of course an Arduino is needed. Uno will work just fine. The video shows connections from a prototyping shield to connect the led matrices and the controls used to demonstrate the functionality of the software, but any of the usual connection methods will suffice.
The PCB can be manufactured at Seeed Studio ( http://www.SeeedStudio.com ) using the files available on the project web site. The zip file distributed contains all the data required by this service. PCB manufacturing can be found in the Services menu, and the board size is 30x50 mm.
