Neopixels worked out awesomely. I put them on my Mickey Mouse ears when we went to Disney World last week. I programmed in 10 different patterns. Each pattern is randomly selected and it’s duration and speed are randomly set each time. Everyone wanted to know where I got them, especially the Disney Cast members!
Adding colorful LEDs to your project used to require a lot of pins on your microcontroller and complex code. With the Adafruit NeoPixels, those problems are a thing of the past. You only need one pin on any microcontroller to run a long string of pixels, and with our open source NeoPixel library, you can get your NeoPixels up and running in seconds.
Not only are NeoPixels easy to use, but they come in a wide variety of designs to fit your project. You can get NeoPixels in sewable form, long waterproof strips, in a ring, on an Arduino shield, on a stick, breadboard friendly and much more! Learn everything there is to know about Adafruit NeoPixels and how easy it is to use them on the Adafruit Learning System.
