Open hardware

You can Do It Yourself! The project is based on Arduino and we try to use only open source software and hardware in the development so you can edit and modify the design to your own needs.

All the code, pieces design, tutorials and instructables are available at the project's GitHub or our blog. You can also contribute to the project, by sending your comments, found issues or sharing your improvements and ideas. Just contact us!


Bike Pixels is not finished yet. As you can see we are under development and new models and functionalities are coming.We are working to include build in battery, brightness control, Android and iOS integration and many more additional options! Check out the road map and send us your ideas if you want to improve the final product.

First prototype
Just basic functionality, some simple effects and elemental icons.
3D printed case
To make the Bike Pixel smaller and in one piece (maybe two).
Brightness control
Enable to setup brightness with one of the buttons.
Color selection
Pick your favorite color for the ride (red recommended :)
Battery integration
To avoid to connect an external source of power.
Bluetooth communication
Because everything is better with Bluetooth.
Custom icons
Draw your own designs and set them in the device.
Animations and effects
To enable to create and upload your effects and animations.
Android app
Connect your Bike Pixel with your Android phone.
