‘Trixel LED’ is a Modular Kit for Making LED Sculptures from Triangle, Square, Pentagon and Hexagon Shapes

Very cool modular LED kit system from Arkadi here at Hackaday.IO – their entry in the Hackaday Prize 2017. Love the OSH Park purple PCBs with this overall design system and might have to order some of these myself to tinker with!

Get the Eagle files and ‘strandtest’ code here on GitHub; check out more images on the Hackaday.IO project page here; and of course watch the quick video below to see them in action!

NeoPixel RGB 5050 LED with Integrated Driver Chip – 100 Pack: Make your own smart LED arrangement with the same integrated LED that is used in our NeoPixel strip and pixels. This tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) RGB LED is fairly easy to solder and is the most compact way possible to integrate multiple bright LEDs to a design. The driver chip is inside the LED and has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making your design minimal. Power the whole thing with 5VDC and you’re ready to rock. Read more.
