how does it work?

Pixelstick may seem like magic, but it's actually pretty simple. Each one of pixelstick's 200 LEDs acts like a pixel on a screen, displaying your image one vertical line at a time as you walk. These vertical lines, when captured by a long exposure, combine to recreate your image in mid air, leaving pixelstick (and the person using it) invisible.

endless possibilities

Pixelstick comes packed with a dozen built-in patterns to get you started, but the real magic comes when you bring your own images to the party. From a hand-drawn pattern to a still from your favorite movie, pixelstick can handle anything you throw at it. Once you've picked an image, use the controller to tweak brightness, speed, white balance, and a host of other options to ensure you get the perfect shot.

it's in the bag

Pixelstick loves to travel. At a collapsed height of 42", all pixelstick’s parts fit snugly in the included carry bag, so it can go where you go, including carry-on luggage. Pixelstick is black, the interior of the bag is orange. Smart, right?

The slot that runs down pixelstick’s back means you can mount things to pixelstick (and vice versa) to your heart's content using 1/4-20 UNC nuts & bolts. We also offer accessories.

• Creative Lens Pack - If you want more control over your image style, grab the Creative Lens Pack with two alternate lenses for that retro scan-line look or buttery-smooth extra diffusion.

• Remote Trigger - Rarely is a thing not made better when you can control it from 50ft away; pixelstick is no exception. The remote trigger lets you fire pixelstick from behind the camera or down the street. It's perfect for shooting with a friend and invaluable when creating animations.
