While pixel art has lots of fans on the Web, it’s not an art form that you often see hanging on walls or on desks. That’s something PIXEL is looking to change. PIXEL’s ultra-bright LEDs gives you a place to view that retro-flavoured pixel art in a resolution of 32×32 or SUPER PIXEL’s 64×64.

PIXEL comes included with 170+ unique works of pixel art content via a collaboration with 12 pixel artists all over the world. And of course you can easily add your own pixel art too. The software and hardware created for PIXEL: LED ART are both open source and fully hackable using PIXEL’s software API.

Simply select the art from your Android phone and download to PIXEL. After that, PIXEL runs in stand alone mode with no mobile device connection necessary.
