The galaxy’s brightest color-mixing pixel blade
For anyone that loves the color-mixing capabilities of the NECree RGB™, but still want more brightness and evenness out of the blade, the solution is here – IntelliBlade™.
Choose from one of the connectors below when ordering your IntelliBlade™
IntelliBlade™ is a pixel-style blade. Unlike the traditional in-hilt LEDs such as the NECree RGB, the entire blade is filled with small RGB LEDs which the board can control. This allows full RGB color-mixing with unparalleled brightness. IntelliBlade™ works with all of my boards of the following versions: S2-R3+, SC2-R3+, I2+. It will also work with any other board that has pixel support, including competitor boards and open source boards alike.
What makes IntelliBlade™ special is that it is the first purpose-built pixel blade for sabers. Going skinnier than the so-called “skinny” led strips sold elsewhere, this strip fits inside even a 7/8” blade with ease. Further, we’ve sourced the brightest possible RGB LEDs, to give it even that much more brightness. Finally, with the more rigid pcb to prevent shadowing, this strip is touting over 4,000 Lux when installed using the normal foam + 2 ft wrap + LED diffuser method. That’s twice as bright as a straw-hat style blade, and almost twice as bright as an NECree RGB near the emitter, with no loss of brightness down the blade.
IntelliBlade™ kit – Ready to be Built Into a Blade
The IntelliBlade™ kit comes with the following items:
All that is needed to complete the install is the blade, tip, and 40” LED diffuser, all sold at The Custom Saber Shop.
Be the total envy at cons, outdoor events, or anywhere your saber takes you with this insanely bright RGB blade!
Connectors and 3D printed parts shown in the pictures above a representation of what will be received; color and style may vary. All will be printed in PETG with 100% infill for easy modification if needed. Parts will require some light sanding/filing to get the connectors to fit properly.
