The basic board is $25, or you can opt for a more fully featured package such as the Developer Kit which includes a serial cable, two LED strips, a 0.96-inch OLED display, and a selection of three sensors. All this comes in for just $59.
There’s nothing you can do with the ANAVI Miracle Controller that you couldn’t do with a bare microcontroller and a little wiring, but it does package everything up well and makes it a bit easier to plug everything together. Though we haven’t got our hands on one to test, from the looks of things, it should be an attractive option for people who aren’t confident working with microcontrollers, but want to design their own lighting system.

When backing a crowdfunding campaign, you are not purchasing a inished product, but supporting a project working on something new. There is a very real chance that the product will never ship and you’ll lose your money. It’s a great way to support projects you like and get some cheap hardware in the process, but if you use it purely as a chance to snag cheap stuff, you may find that you get burned.
