To use Expressive Pixels, you need a Windows 10 PC with the May 2019 operating system update (version 18362.0) or higher. You can determine the version by going to STart -> Gear Icon (Settings) - System -> About and the info is at the bottom of the listed text.

On a Windows 10 computer, click the button below to download the Expressive Pixels App from the Microsoft Store.

In the Microsoft Store, click Install to install the Expressive Pixels application to your computer. 

Once installed, click the Launch button in the Microsoft Store to launch Expressive Pixels.

Expressive Pixels will launch and display a safety warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy or light sensitivities.

Click Acknowledge

The animations have blinking lights - it could trigger someone with sensitivities. Please be sure you'll be ok (or have someone else program things) if you have photosensitive epilepsy or light sensitivities.

Next, we'll connect the Matrix Portal to Expressive Pixels and start creating animations!
