NEW PRODUCT – BlinkyTile – Light Sculpture Kit


BlinkyTile is a system of LED lights on pentagonal tiles for creating dynamic light sculptures in any shape you can imagine!

Our friends at Blinkinlabs are at it again with the BlinkyTile Light Sculpture Kit! Each BlinkyTile has one individually controllable, multi-color LED, and the solder pads form both the physical and electrical connections between the lights. They can be soldered together to form any shape you can imagine.

Each set of BlinkyTiles comes with a controller programmed with several special light animation modes to make your project look awesome. But it’s not a one-trick pony: this controller will also connect to pattern editor software that allows you to easily make your own animations in a simple drawing program. Their software will even let you create sound-reactive sculptures!

Features:

  • Supports hundreds of individually-addressable tiles
  • Single USB connector for power and control – just like BlinkyTape!
  • Make patterns easily with the graphical pattern editor
  • Program your own – powered by the same chips as Arduino boards
  • Open Source Hardware – for total control and infinite possibilities
  • RGB LEDs out the wazoo!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
