by Benjamin H

Orders are starting to arrive! I have a few reports of folks getting their first look at V3, and as of February 10th my status page shows 85% of the orders have been delivered.

If you are curious where your order is, check your Crowd Supply account page, where you can see your orders and tracking information.

So to all the new Pixelblaze magicians, welcome!

What’s Next?

I hope that by the time you read this, you have a V3 in hand, hopefully with some LEDs as well!

The absolute best place to explore all things Pixelblaze is at electromage.com. There, you will find these resources to help you explore Pixelblaze and LED magic:

  • Setup, quickstarts, and guides - how to connect and configure Pixelblaze and LEDs, and learn about how to use the app.
  • Discover Serivce - once set up and connected to the internet, you can find your Pixelblazes here.
  • Pattern Sharing - discover more LED patterns, code examples, and share something you've created!

Field Reports

I would like to invite you to a Crowd Supply tradition: the Field Reports program.

Share what you’ve accomplished.

Did you do something unique, difficult, unexpected, or beautiful with your Pixelblaze? Let the community know! Or, maybe you’ve done something less glamorous but nonetheless of potential use to others, like a custom enclosure, or a solution to a knotty power management problem? Share a field report with us.

Enjoy a bit of recognition.

If your field report is selected, you’ll get a $25 Crowd Supply credit and your field report will be published as an official project update, emailed to other backers, included in the Crowd Supply newsletter, and featured in Crowd Supply’s social media and blog.
