The Octolively Kit Tileable Digital LED Soldering Kit (Warm White) are tileable, digital interactive LED surfaces filled with ultrabright LEDs that respond in complex and gentle ways to stimulus provided by human interaction. Each Octolively module is 4 × 8 inches (10.16 × 20.32 cm) in size, and features eight huge (10 mm) ultrabright LEDs, spaced along a two-inch grid. Each Octolively module also has eight infrared proximity sensors— one for every LED —to detect nearby motion, even in total darkness. The modules can be tiled edge-to-edge, seamlessly, in any size or shape of rectangular array. You can cover a full wall, or just make a long strip as narrow as 4 or 8 inches wide.
Octolively modules come pre-programmed with eight different effects that respond to motion and gradually fade back to idle when there is no motion— ideal for making interactive LED walls, bar tops, and coffee tables. You can switch between the different effects with a button press: Gently fading trails after your motion, a "heat" mode that gets brighter as it detects more motion, simple positive and negative "shadow" effects that light the LEDs— or darken them —wherever you touch, ripple, sparkle, and a "melting" mode where activated pixels fade only very slowly.
Octolively modules use a combination of active and passive near-infrared sensing to detect motion. A sensing range of 10-15 cm is typical in a completely dark room, or in a room lit by fluorescent lighting, where the only infrared sources are the ones built into the modules. However, in the presence of infrared light sources such as IR LEDs, incandescent lamps, or sunlight, Octolively modules can respond to changes in light and shadow with essentially unlimited range.
Octolively modules function well under a wide variety of clear glass and plastic materials. While the bulk material should be clear, the surface can be frosted to obscure the circuitry below. For example, etched glass and sanded acrylic are known to work well. Tinted materials generally decrease but do not eliminate the sensitivity of the modules, and opaque materials are generally not suitable.
