We Are Live!

by Benjamin H

Hey glowy-blinky fans,

The magicians and weavers have toiled and crafted, forging the inner workings of the campaign’s magic. Though the day wanes, the Pixelblaze V3 campaign LIVES! To anyone who knows Pixelblaze, thank you for being here. For any new adventurers, welcome! The LEDs are bright.

In case you hadn’t already gotten the good word, this campaign was summoned at an extra special time. Crowd Supply is shifting their fulfillment process to a new system. This means lower prices then would have existed in the old system, and you get FREE domestic shipping on everything until November 21st. The magical shipping portal will close on the 22nd, and so too will the free shipping, so don’t delay!

Why Pixelblaze?

I created Pixelblaze because I wanted a better, faster way to write patterns for LEDs. I like to think we have come quite far with that.

This latest incantation of Pixelblaze brings more computing power and a smaller form factor so it can be used in even more creative ways, both larger in scope and smaller in size. This project will help continue the development of Pixelblaze with more features in the future.

We are overjoyed to launch this campaign on Crowd Supply. We are prepared, and yet the battle has just begun! Explore what path lay behind us, and help forge the future!
