Pixel-Poi® light batons are cutting-edge programmable LED devices which use persistence of vision effects to display breathtaking graphics, text and logos.

They were invented in 2005 by leading light-juggling performance group Feeding the Fish who devised a novel method to display detailed graphics in lights using spinning juggling props and went on to patent the technology and trademark the Pixel-Poi name.  FtF continue to amaze audiences with this unique technology around the world.

If you are interested in booking a show featuring Pixel-Poi or seeing videos and photos of them in action, please visit our sister site: www.feedingthefish.com.

Rental

Pixel-Poi® light batons are available for hire to production companies and professional performance groups. High profile rentals to date include:

  • Take That’s record-breaking stadium tour ‘The Circus’ in 2009, which hired Pixel-Poi for all of the dancers on stage and on the catwalk runway. They were used to stunning effect in the finale song ‘Hold up a Light’.
  • Ferrari-World Abu Dhabi, where a 5 person Pixel-Poi performance by the cast has been a highlight of Ferrari’s Pit-Lane show three times every day since it opened in autumn 2010.
  • The largest Pixel-Poi routine ever featured in the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games held in the Olympic Stadium: 66 hired Pixel-Poi brought the 30th Olympiad to a spectacular close. The cast of dancers performed a specially programmed routine directed by Kim Gavin alongside UK band Coldplay, with the now legendary stadium-bank LED display showing complimentary graphics. Unforgettable.
  • Pop icon ‘Pitbull’ perfomed at the MTV European Music Awards 2012 in Frankfurt with a cast of 18 dancers spinning Pixel-Poi.
