Product Description


RGB Pixels are digitally-controllable lights you can set to any colour, or animate. Each RGB LED and controller chip is moulded into a ‘dot’ of silicone. The dots are IP68 weatherproof and rugged. There are four flanges moulded in so that you can ‘push’ them into a 12mm drill hole in any material up to 1.5mm/0.06″ thick. The pixels are connected by a 4-conductor cable. +5V (Red), Ground (Blue), Data (White) and Clock (Green). Data is shifted down from one pixel to the next so that you can easily cut the strand or attach more onto the end.

They’re typically used to make outdoor signs, but can be used for many more applications such as;
– Ambilight for TV to create amazingly immersive television experience.
– Christmas light displays
– Lit staircases triggered by sensors
– Light painting photography
And many more

Most of the people use these LED strips to build ambilight for TV. Once attached to your TV (se photos for ideas of how to attach them) and connected to compatible device such as Raspberry Pi (recommended) or Arduino with applicable software you are able to make the LEDs project an “extension” of the video played through the device on to the wall.

Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc is suited best for this application since it has a built in support for these lights.
