Seamlessly paint photoreal images, abstract designs, and animation into your long exposure photos and timelapse. Pixelstick consists of 200 full color RGB LEDs inside a lightweight aluminum housing. The mounted controller reads images you've downloaded or created from an SD card and displays them, one line at a time, on the LEDs. Images can be downloaded or created yourself. Pixelstick's incredible resolution and color range coupled with the ability to read custom images means your creative options are nearly limitless. The firmware allows for on-the-fly color correction as well as adjustments to speed, brightness, and orientation. Pixelstick can even automatically increment through a sequence of images over multiple exposures, opening up light painting to the world of time lapse, and allowing for animations of a scope and quality never before seen.

Pixelstick LED is your answer!
Great Tool for Portrait Shooters, Wedding Shooters, Lightpainters, Car Photographers, Glitch Artists, and for Video Shooters.
The Pixelstick is a 6-foot long narrow “stick” covered in LEDs that can be manipulated via the attached controller to “print” colors and images in the air and onto your camera.
There’s a growing number of photographers heading out in the dark, with a camera, tripod and light source in hand to explore the creative possibilities of light-painting photography. It’s a photography form that has moved on leaps and bounds from its early days, although to date, the most sophisticated light-painting tools have been created at home by passionate light-painting photographers. This looks set to change with the Pixelstick.
The Pixelstick appears to be a dream come true for any aspiring light-painting photographer without the technical wizardry to create a complicated light-painting tool for themselves.
Achieving photorealistic effects in-camera with pixelstick
Pixelstick is a versatile tool that can serve many roles in a shooter’s setup, but one of the things that truly sets it apart from other photo lights is its ability to read and display photorealistic images into a long exposure. To achieve all the brilliant reflection and spill of a normal in-camera light with the added benefit of that light taking any form you wish is a useful option to have in your kit.

For all Types Photo Shooters

UPDATE (late April): Emails to the company, posts to website, and posts to FaceBook have gone unanswered. Nice case. Interesting concept. But no quality control and no support from the company. Look for products from other vendors if you want to do light painting.
UPDATE (May 16,2018):
The good news is that after multiple posts across several sites (photo blogs, their new product Kickstarter site, Amazon, etc.) I was able to get a hold of the BitBanger folks. My original post to the PixelStick website had a bad email address (my fault!). They had tried responding to me back in April, but the message bounced. Not sure why the FB, Amazon, and other posts went unanswered though.
The problem was with the wiring connector between the controller and the LED lights. There is a plug that must be push together very aggressively to make proper contact. I had checked this before, but the trick was to connect the plugs, screw down the covering cap, then give the plug another solid push. I could hear it click into place. Once done, the light performed as expected.
I am looking forward to getting out to the desert soon to complete my image experiments with this cool looking tool!
Raised this from a 1* to 3* for now. I will update as I start using it more and adjust the rating accordingly to the unit's performance for imaging. The difficulty in contacting these guys to get a service response is a concern. It is a two person outfit by the looks of it, so somewhat expected. But a clearer path to getting a service request in should not be that difficult to setup on a website. The BitBanger (not the PixelStick) website seems to be the best bet.
