Control a 32x32 LED matrix of 1,024 multi-color LEDs with your Android device , Windows PC, Mac (USB only), or Raspberry Pi (USB only). No soldering or coding required!
PIXEL comes included with 180+ unique works of pixel art content via a collaboration with 12 pixel artists all over the world. And of course you can easily add your own pixel art too. The software and hardware created for PIXEL: LED ART are both open source and fully hackable using PIXEL's software API.
Simply select the art from your Android, PC, Mac, or Raspberry Pi and download to PIXEL. After that, PIXEL runs in stand-alone mode with no device connection necessary. Or leave your device connected and use PIXEL in interactive mode for things like Twitter feeds, interactive animations using the optional proximity sensor, camera phone feeds, and on the fly pixel art creation.
