DESCRIPTION

Defend the galaxy with the new TinySaber! Built around the ATtiny841 microcontroller, this product features sixteen vibrant SK6812mini RGB LEDs, capacitive touch sensors, an accelerometer, and a micro-USB port for battery charging and device programming. You can use the touch sensors to turn the device on and off, change color patterns, and even display Persistence-Of-Vision (POV) text! A double tap can change the base color of the TinySaber to red, green, or blue.

The ATtiny841 is reprogrammable, so you'll be able to customize your TinySaber experience with some basic coding knowledge. You can display your own POV text or make custom color patterns! We will be releasing a tutorial soon with more information on how to reprogram your TinySaber.

Notes

  • The TinySaber features a reprogrammable microcontroller, however, we have not yet released the documentation detailing the process. We will be uploading this to our website in the near future! 
  • Battery life varies depending on which mode the TinySaber is in during use- typically about an hour. 
  • The device still uses power while in Standby (i.e. you've swiped down, all lights are off) so it may need to be recharged before use. 

Assembly

There’s no soldering, no programming, and no glue required to assemble the TinySaber. All you need is the package, the parts in it, and about five minutes before you can defend the galaxy with your new TinySaber!
