  1. Andrew Monteagudo

    I am currently trying to make a pair of firewalker sneakers. I have successfully uploaded the firewalker code to my flora board, but the code doesn’t light up enough LED lights to completely go around my shoe. Does anyone know how I can change the number of LED’s lit up, and is it possible to keep the same sequence of lighting but change the color to green? any advice would help. I’ve never programmed anything before so I’m pretty new.

    Thanks, Andrew

  2. Hey Andrew, you should post up this question on the Wearables board in the forums, out engineers would be happy to help!
