Here’s an easy weekend project that will light up the night and help you stay safe while you skate. This LED upgrade uses NeoPixels and Flora – Adafruit’s microcontroller board. The 3D printed enclosure houses all of the components and has an easy to get to power switch. You can grab the STL files on Thingiverse. For this project, we used the low density weatherproof NeoPixel strips and a small LiPo Battery. The printed cover snaps onto the power switch. We used double sided foam tape to mount the enclosure. The NeoPixel strip slides into place with the 3D-printed clips.
