PIXEL - Programmable Full-Color LED Flashlight Kit
- Currently on Kickstarter -

Introducing The Zifnu PIXEL, the world's first, and most advanced, programmable & customizable full-color 16 LED flashlight kit.

As the name implies, you can individually control each of the PIXEL's sixteen full-color LEDs (aka "pixels") individually by modifying the provided example Arduino sketch and uploading your changes to the PIXEL via USB.

The Zifnu PIXEL is completely open-source, this includes the circuit & PCB design, the software (Arduino Sketch), and the laser-cut case design. All of the files will be available for download once they are finalized after the successful completion of the Kickstarter campaign.
