The Astounding Work of Jason Coon

In the world of awesome LED displays, Jason Coon’s work is a cut above the rest. Time and time again we’ve come across his work, especially on the FastLED Google+ group, and been amazed. So, we couldn’t wait to get some ULTiM8x8s in his hands and see what he would come up with. To say the least, he did not disappoint.

If you love that, check out this insane half cube…

The other thing we love about Jason is that, like us, he’s a big supporter of open source. So, of course, all the code for what you see above is provided:


He’s even provided all the 3D designs to print the parts needed for the cube:

Your Name In Lights!

We are bringing back "YOUR NAME IN LIGHTS!!!" If you like what we are doing and want to see your name on the big screen, this pledge level is for you. We will post a YouTube video of all of our "YOUR NAME IN LIGHTS!!!" backers with some cool animations and royalty free background tunes.



You see where this is going. That's right, three ULTiM8x8 RGB panels with an ULTiM8 Bus back plane to mount them on. Make a clock, or a twitter display, the world is your oyster! Comes with mounting hardware.



Three is good, but nine is thrice as nice! Nine ULTiM8x8 RGB panels with mounting hardware and three ULTiM8 Bus back planes. Great for an 8x72 LED Marquee display, an Awesome 24x24 LED matrix, or lots of blinky blocks all over the place!


ULTiM8 Bus Board

A naked ULTiM8 bus board so you can mix and match pledge levels a la carte style. Mount 1, 2, or 3 ULTiM8x8 boards on each ULTiM8 Bus. Stack multiple ULTiM8 Busses to make even larger arrays. Each ULTiM8 Bus sports an Adafruit Feather footprint.
