Control a 16x32 LED matrix with your Android, PC, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black with the PIXEL Board. Simply use PIXEL’s free apps and send images, GIF animations, scrolling text, Twitter feeds, and your own pixel art creations in minutes, no soldering or coding required! As an added bonus, the 180+ works of original pixel art commissioned for the Kickstarter project comes included too.

PIXEL has two modes: stand alone mode and interactive mode. In stand alone mode, use your device to write a GIF animation to PIXEL’s local microSD card. The GIF will continue to play and loop after your device has been disconnected. In interactive mode, think of PIXEL as a secondary display that does something based on the logic from PIXEL’s apps which can include external sensor inputs too using PIXEL’s 5 sensor ports (2 analog and 3 digital). To develop your own app for PIXEL, you'll need to be familiar with Android and/or Java programming and use the PIXEL SDK and sample code



You’ll supply your own 5V power supply (2A minimum recommended) and 16x32 LED panel.

See this guide for instructions and note that the guide refers to a 32x32 LED matrix panel. The wiring will be exactly the same as in the guide but just with the 16x32 LED panel. When you first run PIXEL’s app, change the LED matrix to 16x32 from the app’s settings.


There's also lots more info on the PIXEL:LED ART project page!

IMPORTANT: The PIXEL PCB board is only compatible with the panels without D pin. It is NOT compatible with the LED panels which have an extra “D” pin. If you need 32×32, then best to look at the PIXEL Guts kit which includes a compatible 32×32 LED panel.

I bought the black one and the chain is gold color. Not sure of the ink bag.

You need a WiFi Internet connection, and a smartphone or tablet for the Echo App. That's it. It is easy to set up, but it may take you a while to figure out all of the little things that the Echo App can do.

BEWARE this is NOT STEREO and it is NOT MONO. This is only one channel. You will not hear part's of songs (recorded in stereo) that are only played through the left channel. Kinda ridiculous. Still it is a decent sounding speaker.

★★★★★ Great bag
Purchased this for my 23 year old daughter in the butterscotch color. Great versatile color. She loves the size -- perfect for day or going out at night. Chain can be double to shorten for nighttime and left long to wear as a crossbody during the day.
