The Evil Mad Scientist just released a smaller version of their “Peggy Board 2″. It’s an open-source LED board, with 25×25 LEDs, that can be programmed and controlled by microcontrollers and – new – also by serial port. The original “fat one” Peggy Board had 10mm (!) LEDs. Now they constructed a smaller one, because “some people needed higher resolution”. Maybe because some people began to build larger displays containing of Peggy Boards. Anyway.. the whole thing is not only very very beautiful, but can be assembled at home for the cost of the hardware. The kit can be directly ordered at the Evil Mad Science shop.

For the serial-connection they used this serial-wiring hack: Check this out!!
