Combining the simplicity of Spark™ with the legendary color-mixing engine from Igniter 2™, Spark Color 2™ satisfies the needs of those who want color-mixing without as many complicated settings to configure. A great board for simple sabers where color-mixing is desired.
A New Way to Experience Colors
Spark Color 2™ allows changing colors in a slight different way than Igniter 2™. Spark Color 2™ has up to 9 global Color Sets (colorsets), where each colorset is comprised of the blade color, clash color, and lockup color. When on any font, performing the wrist-twist motion will advance through the colors. While every font accesses the same 9 colorsets, each font can set which color is it’s default starting color.Compare with other boards
Further, each font independently remembers what color it was on previously. For example, let’s assume font 1 starts on colorset 1. After advancing to colorset 3 by flicking the wrist, font 1 will be on colorset 3. Now, the font is switched to font 2, which starts on colorset 4. Activating this font will immediately go to colorset 4, regardless of what color the other fonts are at. Finally, upon advancing back to font 1 and activating, the colorset will be on colorset 3 since that was the last color used by this particular font.
Pixel Support for the Brightest, Realest Experience Yet
Spark Color 2 now supports Pixel strings! This allows the smooth extension, enhanced Alternating Clash, ImpactBlast™ and much more in the most evenly lit blade seen.
X-Saber Replicates Menacing Feature from the Big Screen
We all remember the first moment seeing the trailer with a loud buzz of the blade extending, followed by another buzz as two small blades extended as well. Now you too can create this terrifying effect in any saber color with X-Saber! X-Saber allows delayed ignition of secondary blades while still retaining RGB color mixing for all blades used! This allows for one saber to have the new effect for any color. It can also be used for a staff to delay the second ignition.
X-Saber requires the separate purchase of the X-Drive module. Buy X-Drive Module
SaberSense™ for Amazing Motion Detection
Just like Igniter 2™, Spark Color 2™ comes equipped with SaberSense™ for accurate swing and impact detection. No more dealing with physical clash sensors, and no more trying to time swings based on config settings; this board senses motion correctly, while still allowing some adjustment to allow end users to get the feel.
Saber Configuration Allows Editing in Real-Time
Saber Configuration mode is a new way to edit colorset and motion parameters on the fly, without removing the micro SD card. When in idle of the main firmware, point the saber down and hold the aux button to enter the Saber Configuration menu. From here the Colorset Editor and the Motion Editor can be accessed, giving the ability to edit these critical parameters and see the effects immediately, in real-time! No more pulling out the micro SD card multiple times to get settings right; do it once, in the hilt, from anywhere.
