Ah, light painting, the photo trick for those who’d like to have their name “hand drawn” in a cool image, which could easily be the envy of your friends who doesn’t even know what long exposure means.

Head out over to Kickstarter to get your Pixelstick at the pledge of at least $300.


The project has more than doubled its funding goal within a week. It means you’ll be receiving your Pixelstick by early next year, if ever you’ll pledge.
