NEW PRODUCT – PIXEL Guts Kit – Bluetooth Controlled 32×32 RGB LED Matrix Kit
NEW PRODUCT – PIXEL Guts Kit – Bluetooth Controlled 32×32 RGB LED Matrix Kit – Control a 32×32 LED matrix with your Android device or PC over Bluetooth, no soldering or coding required! This is a 32×32 (1024 total) LED RGB matrix connected to a custom IOIO Mint so that custom graphics can be sent from any Android device to the display. Originally designed for a kickstarter, now the ‘guts’ of the PIXEL project are available for pixelated graphics fans who want to create their own custom enclosure.
Comes with dozens of fun animations. Or easy create and add your own. Comes with a 32×32 LED Matrix, IOIO Mint with custom ‘shield’, 5V 4A power adapter (US plug but can take 100-240VAC input), Bluetooth module for the IOIO, and necessary cabling. Android tablet/phone not included. You’ll need to have your own Android device for controlling the PIXEL kit.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
