Description

Create LED art installations and wearables using low cost, HUB75 based LED panels. PIXEL supports installations from 32x16, 32x32, 64x32, and 64x64 resolutions. Simply download PIXEL’s free apps for iOS, Android, or Raspberry Pi  and  send GIF animations, scrolling text, and your own pixel art creations in seconds, no soldering or coding required! As an added bonus, the free apps include 100+ works of original pixel art commissioned for this project.




The PIXEL:LED ART board includes an onboard microSD card allowing you to save your LED art designs locally which will loop indefinitely on the LEDs after your device has been Bluetooth disconnected. Or leave your Android or Raspberry Pi connected and custom code an interactive application displaying art or scrolling messages using our open source example code including support for external sensors (external sensors only supported on Android only firmware).


The PIXEL Maker’s Kit comes installed with the Android only firmware by default supporting LED panels from 32x16 to 64x64 and can easily be flashed via the onboard microSD card for iOS and wearable support too. Refer here for firmware upgrade instructions and note that only PIXEL 2.5 boards purchased after February 2018 have a firmware that can be upgraded via the onboard microSD card.

After writing an animation or scrolling text to PIXEL’s onboard microSD card, your LED design will continue to play and loop after your device has been disconnected. Use PIXEL’s Raspberry Pi integration to create a dynamic installation like displaying different animations based on the weather for example.

 

The Android only firmware also supports Seeed Grove sensors, specifically 2 analog and 3 digital IO ports. For example, trigger certain animations when someone is near using a proximity sensor. 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

 

See the PIXEL Maker’s Kit page for a list of tested and supported HUB75 LED matrix panels and power supply options. This kit does not include an LED matrix panel or power supply/battery. Your choice of power supply will depend on the number of LED Matrix panels in your installation.

Hi I'm not sure my last question went through. I want to know if I am able to add more fonts to the text creator on the app?

Hi Priscilla, to add more fonts to the Pixel Text Android app, you'd need to modify the source code for that app and re-compile. It's a fairly easy change though. source here https://github.com/alinke/PixelText
