Create Pixel Master Pieces with the PB Tool

At the request of our customers and many sore fingers we have finished designing the official Pix Brix Tool. The tool has 3 functions for adding and removing Pix Brix.  The tip of the tool can be used to pick up and insert bricks together giving the artist the feeling like they are coloring with Pix Brix. This tip can also push bricks out in specific spots of 2D builds.

The tool also comes with a removable wedge piece inserted in the tip. This wedge piece can be used to separate layers of builds by pushing it into small openings or corners.

Last the top of the tool is used for removing layers of bricks with leverage. Connect the top of the tool to the build layer and tilt the tool back to remove and separate the layer.

Our Next Steps...

Original 15 Color Palette
Original 15 Color Palette

The pixel artists have asked for it and we want to deliver a larger color palette for better gradients and more diverse pixel art and 3D builds. We will expand our current color palette from 15 to 32 beautiful colors which will be divided into 3 series-Light, Medium, and Dark.

New 32 Color Palette

Second we will finish and program these 3 new color series into the Pix Brix app which is now in development.

The Pix Brix app will have a paint function with all 32 colors which can be used to create custom pixel art that can be saved and shared.

The most exciting feature within the app though will be the Pixel Portrait function. The portrait function will pixelate, size, and crop the user’s favorite photos. The app will then give them a color break down with an exact piece count allowing them to order and build their custom pixel image with Pix Brix. Imagine all the amazing pixel images from landscapes to portraits that you can create out of Pix Brix!

The Pix Brix app will be a fun way to help the user create endless unique 1 of a kind pixel art to hang in their home or give as gifts to loved ones.

Production

We are pumped and set to ramp up production! All tooling has been finished and injection machines are primed and ready to start producing the new official 6,000pc Pix Brix Storage Container with customizable lid and tool. The 3 new color series, packaging, and 1,500pc mixed color boxes have been finalized for release and will start shipping June of 2019.

Who is Pix Brix and Why Support Us?

16 years ago Kevin Dumphy started a small toy vending company in sunny Mesa, Arizona with his 3 son's Shawn, Josh, and Eli. Trying for many years to put affordable brick toys in capsules for vending, they found it was nearly impossible.

The current brick building systems available had so many piece designs and were very costly for the vending market. The small kits/builds required too many pieces that most of them did not fit into a vending capsule.

"We thought if we could create our own simple brick system then we could fit enough pieces into a capsule that it might just work for vending...and that is what we did."

In 2016, after two and half years of research of development the first Pix Brix Series "Farm" was released into the toy vending market. Selling over a million capsuled Farm Animals in one year we realized that we had created something special.

Since then we have released 2 more animal series and developed an online store while also creating exclusive custom kits for various companies and studios.

Risks and challenges

Our factory is ready to start producing and we are excited to launch! We’ve worked hard over the last several months to ensure the best customer experience possible and expect to hit all of our delivery deadlines as planned.
With that said, there are inherent risks in the production process that may be beyond control. At any rate we will keep backers updated through the duration of the campaign and manufacturing phase to ensure that we stay as true as possible to the proposed delivery schedule.
