Decorating a holiday tree with a strip of NeoPixel addressable RGB LEDs is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Don’t settle for a simple fixed color or animation of the LEDs though, expose control of the lights through a web page to control them from a phone, tablet, or computer. You can even let your friends and family control the lights for maximum holiday entertainment!
This project will show you how to use an Arduino Yun or a CC3000 WiFi chip & regular Arduino to control a strip of NeoPixels through a web page. This project is a good example of interacting with an Arduino through a web page that you can use in your own Arduino projects.
