Thanks for following my #LED Matrix Display project. It looks quite similar to your Pixie modules.

It is quite similar, even down to the display drivers! If you'd like, we could work together in the future to add compatibility between the two, such as the Pixie library gaining support for your LTP2558AA modules so people can reach out to you for hardware support/me for software. I originally intended on using that I2C translator you have, but didn't like the idea of specific voltages required for specific addresses, which I thought would require a very solid power source to ensure they stay assigned correctly. Have you had any problems with that so far?

Also, I'm real quick to reply on Twitter, and you can see more Pixie updates there.

Thank you for the Like of the #P2 - Pick and Place for 3D Printers project.  Coming from you, that means little bit more..  :) I am currently struggling to find the time and motivation within the same timeslot to move forward on this in a meaningful way.  Family will always be first, job second, and third has been consumed by secondary family things for a while now.  I hope this can change soon.  Thank you for your interest.

Think about a half-width Lixie containing special characters. Maybe only five layers instead of ten.  We need a colon to make a clock.... Maybe small am/pm indicator?  Alarm on/off?

Lixies are a fantastic and beautiful idea!  Looks great. I looked, but did not find any physical dimensions.  Could you please post the dimensions.  Thank you.
