 [[http://macetech.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=11|LED Matrix Shades]] are a wearable LED matrix shaped like slotted sunglasses. They are made from FR4 standard PCB material and 3D printed plastic parts. An integrated battery provides hours of tether-free operation, and an Arduino-compatible microcontroller can generate a wide variety of LED patterns. New patterns and messages can be programmed using the Arduino IDE. Code is downloaded to the LED Matrix Shades through a standard USB Mini-B connector; the integrated battery also charges through USB. [[http://macetech.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=11|LED Matrix Shades]] are a wearable LED matrix shaped like slotted sunglasses.

-The LED Matrix Shades require fairly complex code in order to manage the basic functionality, so it's a good idea to start with our example code. Download the ZIP file here: http://www.macetech.com/AS1130Glasses.zip+The LED Matrix Shades require fairly complex code in order to manage the basic functionality, so it's a good idea to start with our example code.

-First, close the Arduino IDE. Unzip the AS1130Glasses.zip file; it should contain a folder named "**AS1130Glasses**" which contains several other files. Place the entire folder in your Arduino sketchbook folder. If you don't know where the sketchbook folder is, check in your personal Documents folder for an Arduino folder. Otherwise, you can find the sketchbook folder location by checking the Arduino > Preferences or File > Preferences menu when the Arduino IDE is running. Move the entire AS1130Glasses folder (not just the files inside) to the Arduino sketchbook folder. Now, start the Arduino IDE again.+The code is also available on Github: https://github.com/macetech/LEDMatrixShades
