Canadian developer Sean Hodgins has this week launched his fourth Kickstarter crowdfunding project to raise the required funds he needs to take the new PIXO Pixel Internet of Things RGB display into production. Based on the ESP32 the display has been created to provide makers, hobbyists and electronic enthusiasts with a way of easily controlling a matrix of 256 or 16 x 16 RGB LEDs.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Internet of Things connected display which is now available to backfire Kickstarter with pledges for early bird backers from £106 or CAD$185 fully assembled. Sean has also made available a kit priced at CAD$50 or £29 providing everything you need including bare circuit boards and hardware to build it yourself if you would prefer.
The open source PIXO Pixel uses APA102-2020 addressable LEDs in a 16 x 16 array that measured just 2 mm x 2 mm each, offering a very bright and fast system. The system supports both Bluetooth and wireless connections and can be programmed using the Arduino IDE or MicroPython preferred. The IoT RGB display also includes a prototyping board enabling you to add more components such as an accelerometer, light sensor, thermometer or anything else your project may require with ease.
