Introducing Spark 3™, the top-tier board with entry-level pricing. Spark 3 combines a true 16bit DAC with MotionSense V2, the same beloved motion recognition of Igniter 3™, and pairs it with RGB color mixing. Features normally reserved for the highest models, now available for an affordable price.Compare with other boards
RealSwing™ - Precise and Realistic Motion Tracking Engine
The next iteration in the MotionSense algorithm, S3-R3 comes equipped with RealSwing™! Utilizing RealSwing™, the saber is able to track the motion in real-time, continually selecting the appropriate pitched sound and amplitude for the motion. This allows for precise swings that match the motion at any velocity. Further, all swing sounds are based off the same swing files, so they have the same timbre and thus sound better together than other algorithms like smoothswing.
Simple Color Mixing
Spark 3™ supports RGB color-mixing, allowing one hilt to support dark users, light users, or anything in between. Each of the three fonts can choose a blade color, clash/lockup color, and blast color for a total of nine unique colors.
Spark 3™ supports WS2812B, WS2813, SK6812 strips, including RGBW! For the brightest and most even blade, you don’t need to pay a fortune to drive it.
Saber tracks allows playing all the classic songs right from the saber. Moreover, the blade with the pulse effect can be turned on while the music is playing, allowing for a fun saber experience.
With Spark 3™, it is possible to use a saber with two smaller side blades with delayed ignition, without any additional hardware. The side blades and main blade will be a single color, but can support a second flash color as well for the classic clash-flash.
