Pixel8 is a digital canvas comprised by a matrix of 256 ultra-bright LED pixels. Each LED pixel can be individually controlled to display millions (24-bit) of colors, so they're perfect for displaying 'LED (pixel) art' such as your favorite frames and animations from classic video games!

Pixel8's pixels are controlled by a tiny processor, the ESP8266 System-on-Chip (SoC). This powerful-yet-inexpensive chip additionally allows Pixel8 to be configured over Wi-Fi through an intuitive web interface.

Pixel8 allows us to upload our favorite 16×16 images (.jpg format) using a web browser. We can then set parameters for adjusting the time intervals between the images, and also displaying cool animations!
