Programmable & Customizable Full-Color 16 LED Flashlight Kit

The Zifnu PIXEL is the world’s first, and most advanced, programmable & customizable full-color 16 LED flashlight kit. As the name implies, you can individually control each of the PIXEL’s sixteen full-color LEDs (aka “pixels”) by modifying the provided example Arduino sketch and uploading your changes to the PIXEL via USB.

The Zifnu PIXEL is completely open-source, this includes the circuit & PCB design, the software (Arduino Sketch), and the laser-cut case design. All of the files will be available for download once they are finalized after the successful completion of this campaign.

The laser-cut case materials for the campaign rewards are clear Acrylic for the front and rear panels, and Bamboo for the center sections. This combination of the Acrylic and Bamboo give the PIXEL a modern, yet warm feel.

With the downloadable case design files, you can cut your own parts to personalize your PIXEL. In the example images below, you will find a completely clear Acrylic case and one with translucent Blue center sections. Both awesome in their own right. What will you choose?
