    The Good Stuff!

    This is a group buy for the ESPixelStick, an E1.31 WiFi pixel controller built around the ESP8266 in an Arduino environment. I have a write-up on my site that details it here. It is a single universe controller that currently supports WS2811 pixels, with plans for other pixels in the future (GECE next on the list). Jumper configuration is provided for support of a 12V or 5V supply. The firmware is open source and available here. Once connected to your WiFi network, further configuration can be done via the embedded web server. The controller is small enough to fit inside 1" thin wall PVC, allowing you to embed the controller next to your element eliminating issues of long pixel runs. The ESPixelStick is being provided in kit form, with all SMD components pre-soldered. Please feel free to address any questions or concerns in this thread, thank you!

    ESPixelStick Prototype:

    *Group Buy boards will have the wafer connector replaced with a pluggable screw terminal, similar to euro-style plugs.

    How to Participate
    I'm doing this a little different than most group buys. To ease logistics and keep orders / shipping straight, I've created a Google Form for participants to fill out. I will periodically review submissions, issue invoices via PayPal and update this thread with participants. Please allow a day for me to invoice you. If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to post about them in this thread. If you have not received a PayPal invoice from me by 12PM EST on 8/24, CONTACT ME ASAP.
