BlinkyTile Updates!

The BlinkyTile Kickstarter campaign is coming to an end, and we have a few things that we’d like to share before it’s all wrapped up!

Pattern Mapping Demo

Here’s something we’re excited to share: a demonstration of a sculpture that we’ve mapped out in software. This allows different kinds of effects, including the waves of darkness and light shown here:

The mapping for this one was a manual process- take a picture of the sculpture, determine the x and y coordinates of each of the tiles, then record them into a table in the animation sketch. Based on this, we’re building a software program to take care of the tedious bits and get down to sweet lighting action.

But that’s not all!

There are a few other cool pieces of news, so head over to the Kickstarter Update Post if you want to read more, including news about PCB panels (as in the post’s featured image.) And time is running down, so now’s the time to share BlinkyTile with your friends!

Cheers,
The BlinkinLabs Team
