New Product: Flexineocube!

Flexineocube

It’s weird, experimental, folds together, and lights up! Introducing the Flexineocube! 😀

Flexineocube consists of two flexible boards. Each board has 3 addressable RGB LEDs on them (like the Adafruit Neopixels). You can fold the boards together to form a cube.

The material is very lightweight, so you can hang it from somewhere and have it wave in the wind!

You can get one now on the RoboBrrd Store!

It’s name your price starting at $23. Buying a Flexineocube is a great way to pitch in for some more of our experiments. 😀

Timelapse Video

 

Here is a short video of the making of the boards in gEDA! Time goes by so quickly on timelapse mode…

New Tutorial

 

We are including 3D printed enclosure ‘sleds’ with each of the boards. It would be very tedious to design these by hand, but there is a way you can export the pcb from gEDA into Inventor. We thought we would share this with you!

Open Source Hardware!

 

The gEDA pcb files, as well as the Inventor enclosure files are open source!
