About

 Easily add LED lighting to any project 

General Purpose | Reusable | Add lights where you want them

Smart Lighting is everywhere these last few years - so getting controllers for LEDs is cake. Installing LED strips with a great outcome can be a coin flip though. Lots of folks have great ideas for LED strips, but don't want to hassle with wonky connectors, soldering everything, or risk the end result not turning out that great.

This Patent Pending "Easy LED System" forms a Clean and Professional install for flexible LED strips. Quickly apply an LED strip on the minimalist frame in standard or custom lengths. The solder-free connectors mate with the LED strip for power & data signal.  Done.

   We're Re-Launching LiTTT™ Snap! 

So we're rebooting the campaign with a much lower funding Goal and lower backer package prices. And that is GOOD NEWS!  Here's how we're pulling this off:

Our alternative manufacturer has finalized their proposal and they're charging much less for tooling + assembly. With their partnership, we can get LiTTT™ Snap! delivered faster and without a large overall funding goal for tooling to boot.

If you follow us on Kickstarter or Facebook, or even Twitter you will be able to get notified as soon as we re-launch. And we'll need your pledges coming in hot right from the launch to keep the campaign in a good spot to ensure funding comes in from other Kickstarter folks.

We don't want you to miss out when we re-launch, so please follow me on Kickstarter & Facebook, or even Twitter ASAP - Convenience buttons below

   Get the Perfect install - Every time

The LEDs are easily setup and work with existing tech such as Arduino, Motherboards, Home Accent Lighting, Home Theater ambient lighting, or even a Commercial Venue. 

     Manufacturing Cost & Spending Plan

   Connector & Frame CAD Details

There are so many project ideas for LED strips now, you really have to check them out and see which ones are for you. Whichever it is, LiTTT™ Snap! can make it a breeze for you.

   Save Time & Money, no matter what you're lighting up.

The LiTTT™ Snap! kits are customizable and suitable for DIY and Professional projects. The LiTTT™ QuadColor RGBW digitally addressable flexible LED strips have vastly improved electrical characteristics at a very cost effective price point. 

   Now you can easily add lighting to anything

With LiTTT™ Snap! You can trim your frames to custom lengths and put multiple segments together with various fixed angle connectors. Electrical contacts are built in!

    No Soldering - just plug, play & enjoy

We designed custom LED strips plus a family of connectors that pair perfectly with the frames.  LiTTT™ Snap! works with existing 3-pin LED Digitally Addressable LED strips and existing LED controllers.

   LiTTT™ RGBW QuadColor LED Strips

The framing and connector system works with any 3-Pin LED strips. The LiTTT™ RGBW LEDs are the perfect compliment for LiTTT™ Snap! and help ensure an absolutely perfect install. If you don't know which LEDs to use, check ours which are available in backer packages.

    We've made our own LEDs strips to compliment LiTTT™ Snap!

We've also coordinated with the manufacturer on tooling for an improved LED strip PCB design for better electrical characteristics.

   LiTTT™ Snap! Connector Development Status

When we reach our initial funding goal at 100% we will produce the connectors in the 45° and 90° variants, which are available in the current backer packages. But the LiTTT™ Family of LED projects has much more in store. Accurate "Designs for Manufacture" and working Prototypes are already complete. 

We just need backers to fund the tooling and assembly costs we've already been quoted.

      Frame Options: 3D PRINT or RPVC 

  •  3D Printing : The extruded frame segment .stl is file available with certain backer packages, and is most suitable for builds with small lengths or short runs. Custom twists or curves can also be printed. The finish quality depends on your printer.
  •  Extruded RPVC : Best finish quality. Fastest Option. Great for longer runs, probably the most hassle free option. We are purchasing this extrusion in bulk to pass on the savings.

     The LiTTT™ RGBW LEDs Look Great 

The Digitally Addressable QuadColor LEDs have already been manufactured and stress tested. In fact, we made a recent change to the PCB to improve the mating area for the connectors even further. They have a great design for the copper traces that maximize the surface area with bonded dual layers. The White LED doesn't have to be used if you just want to use the RGB. However running just the white diode uses less voltage that running RGB to create a white light. It's more efficient, looks much brighter and makes a much wider color gamut, in general.

     LiTTT™ Snap! Connector Variants & Stretch Goals 

When we reach 500% funding we can produce the 135° and 180° connector variants. Since only the fixed angles are different, which makes this stretch goal very promising, requiring only a new multi-cavity injection mold, and sheet metal die. All other tooling is reusable.

Stretch Goal: Multi-Cavity Injection Mold and Sheet Metal die for two new angles!
Stretch Goal: Multi-Cavity Injection Mold and Sheet Metal die for two new angles!

      A look ahead at what we're working on for stretch goals

This stretch goal adds a lot of flexibility and modularity in mounting methods and different places your setup can be installed in.

     LiTTT™ Snap! Fixed Mounting Method (Stretch Goal) 

In addition to new connector angles, we're aiming for this very exciting add-on: The Mounting Method as seen below will be available in the fixed & ball-joint configurations which are cross-compatible with both the coupler and clip over style mount heads.

   LiTTT™ Snap! Ball-Joint Mounting Method (Stretch Goal)

When we reach 1000% funding we can produce the Mounting Method in the Ball-Joint configuration, which introduces a lot of utility in where and how you can install the frames!

   LiTTT™ Snap! Rotating Corner Connector (Stretch Goal) 

If we reach 1500% funded or higher, we will produce rotating connectors for free angle movement. These cost more in terms of tooling and assembly, that's why they're a stretch goal. These patent pending, Rotational connectors are an amazing add-on to the system!

     Electrical characteristics of LiTTT™ RGBW LED Strips

We thought you might like to know that we've already selected the manufacturers working on this project to speed up delivery for you. The Bonded Dual Layers or the LiTTT™ RGBW LED strips have maximize the available surface area for the 5V and GND rails to minimize voltage drops in longer runs. In addition, the PCB design eliminates any weak or thin areas so they withstand much more flexing and folding than other strips. 

   The White Diode (RGBW) opens up a world of possibilities

There are many open sources libraries for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and may plug and play controllers starting to make great use of RGBW LED strips. One exciting application we are working is video to light technologies which compliment HDR and Dolby Vision content.

   All in One Lighting Solution

  •  Reusable: Unplug and re-use connectors and frames any time
  •  Modular: Every LiTTT™ product is carefully engineered to play perfectly together
  •  Multi-Purpose: Gaming Computer, Home Decor, Ambient Lighting, + More

If you've got your eye on a DIY LED electronics project such as Persistence-of-Vision, or perhaps ambient lighting for a Home Theater, Game Room, Smart Home, Retail Space, or even your Vehicle - the Next Generation LED framing and connector System – LiTTT™ Snap! is right for you! You can choose a backer package with standardized pieces or contact us for custom framing lengths and quantities.

     Our Next Campaign: The LiTTT™ HUB™

Don't forget - if this campaign is successful we can finalize the development and polish the software features of the LiTTT™ HUB™ - One Connected Lighting Controller to Rule them All. Perfect Harmony for lighting up your world in the blink of an eye. Record and Share ambient lighting profiles. All from Video Based content.

One Connected Lighting Controller to Rule them All. The LiTTT™ HUB.

All Backers of the LiTTT™ Snap! campaign will receive an bird special price on the LiTTT™ Hub! when it launches in addition to special insiders news and announcements.

Risks and challenges

The largest risk factor involved is the margin of the manufacturer's tooling cost for the molding and assembly of LiTTT™ Snap. To mitigate this risk, we've carefully vetted potential manufacturers and reviewed their proposals as a basis for the cost of our backer packages. We stand by the viability, utilitarian potential, and cost-effective nature of our patent pending designs. We also firmly believe in the fantastic potential of Kickstater to bring exiting ideas to life. The custom LED strips have already been manufactured, and only tooling + assembly costs remain to deliver the rest to your doorstep.
