LEDs on pentagonal tiles for creating dynamic light sculptures

Matt Mets has a Kickstarter for something he calls BlinkyTile.

It's a fun little set of pentagonal LED circuit board tiles that you can solder together to make geometric shapes, and then program to make dazzling light shows. It's unique because the LEDs are all connected in parallel, but each one has it's own address, so you can make any kind of structural topology and still control each light individually. I would of course appreciate any attention I could get for it!

    Agree about the soldering, since this is low-voltage, surface-to-surface contact at the interlock points would work. Also - why not triangles or other polygons?
