It’s always a happy day when a project makes it from the “In Progress” bucket to the “Done” bucket. This one had been in the former for quite some time. But now that it’s complete, I thought it fitting to show it off and share some of the steps along the way.

Good News, Everyone! We’ve been toying around with the idea of updating the design for our AllPixel LED Controler for a while now, and we’re making great progress. The image above is our first prototype, fresh from MacroFab. Everything looks good so far! Here’s a few noteworthy notes on the new design:

  • Fully Assembled: No user soldering required!
  • Tiny: Measures in at about 1.6 x 1.2 inches (40.6 x 30.5 mm)
  • Updated USB:Now uses the more common micro USB

We’re excited to get our hands on this first prototype, and we’ll be starting to reach out to our contract manufacturers in the very near future. Stay tuned to our site for more updates as they happen!

Hello! We’re not dead yet! Now that the holidays are behind us, we’re going to get back into the swing of posting more content on a regular basis. We’ve got some neat things coming up, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out this Freaking Awesome arcade joystick built by forum user [mlapsa]. BiblioPixel was used to control the LED strips inside of the wood and Lexan case. Excellent work!
