Tired of creating masterpieces on your etch-a-sketch? Maybe you’ve thought about moving up to Lite-Brite art, but it wasn’t quite doing it for you. Well my friends, this is Lite-Brite on steroids, mixed with some ectstacy. It’s Bandai’s Luminodot. Essentially an updated Lite-Brite with over twice the resolution (resolution being pegs) of the original. Just like th original, you get several design templates with the kit. There’s even an online template generator that will render your very own designs to PDF.
The kit also gives you 1,600 pegs in twelve colors, which will fill about half the Luminodot’s 70 x 50, 3,500 peg display. Don’t worry, you can order more if your kid and your pets eat them. It has the typical LED backlighting you would expect, but interestingly it also features twenty-five preprogrammed animated sequences. Wait for it…. Currently it’s only available in Japan. Yeah I know. I hate typing that as much as you hate reading it. Check out a video below.
