First Bike Pixel Rear prototype ready10/31/2018
After a few weeks of planing, coding, proofs and tries and retries I’m pleased to announce that the first prototype of the BikePixel Rear is ready to go.
This version is based on Arduino Nano (actually a clone ;), our own PCB and a couple of other components (more information in the GitHub repository).
The electronics are very simple and it is only necessary to connect the Arduino board with the PCB where you also have to solder the buttons with their corresponding resistances along with the RGB 8×8 LED matrix (WS2812B).
Finally all that’s left is to put everything in the plexi box designed to contain the electronics of the prototype and screw together all the layers and optionally also the Arduino plate (although it’s also enough to glue it with hot silicone).
