Make Your Own Rainbow In The Rain With FLORAbrella #AdafruitWeekendProject

Light up a rainy night with this Adafruit tutorial for FLORAbrella!

You’ll be a rainbow in any storm with the FLORAbrella. With its NeoPixel LED strips and color sensor, you’ll be able to match your clothing, or display rainbow and rain patterns. Get ready to have an entourage at the next parade!

For this project, you’ll need to create the circuit, mount it in the dome of the umbrella, and then finish it off by creating clear vinyl hammocks for the battery, FLORA and color sensor. This is an intermediate-level project that requires some precise soldering on the LED strips, so just stay away from caffeine and keep your cat away. Also, make sure you read and practice the following guides:
