Pixelinvaders by Micael Vogt: A Fun LED Project for Light Designers
Aug 17, 2011 Michael Vogt from Switzerland has designed a fun to play and easy to install LED based RGB panels that you can use to create pixelated moving images.
According to his project website pixelInvaders is an open-source hardware project for artists and anyone interested in light design.
The PixelInvaders LED system consists of 3D RGB LED panels, that are capable of playing back real-time generated video animations or simple color changes. Multiple PixelInvader panels can be connected with each other to form a panel of any size. The panels are based on the latest LED technology - besides low heat dissipation and long life, a panel may illuminate an entire room and consume less energy than a standard lightbulb!
PixelInvaders panels are perfectly used as effect lighting in clubs, bars, fairs, museums, on stage, in a lobby or in your living room. The control software "PixelController" generates the video animation in real time. This has the advantage of video animations that are synchronized to music. PixelController is released as open-source project on GitHub.
The prices for the "assemble-it-yourself" packages start rather high at $282 for 70 smart RGB LED Pixel modules and go up to $ 1,499 for the ready to use 816mm x 816 mm Pixelinvaders LED Wall, but since it's a start-up project your money are more like the philanthropic contribution for the development of the project.
