Introduction: Control a 16x32 LED matrix with your Android, PC, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black with the PIXEL Board. Simply use PIXELâs 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 PIXELâs 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 PIXELâs apps which can include external sensor inputs too using PIXELâs 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.Â Â Specification: Youâll 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 PIXELâs app, change the LED matrix to 16x32 from the appâs settings. Â There's also lots more info on the PIXEL:LED ART project page!
