matthewa2 shared A Neopixels look work sharing…. on the Adafruit Forums:
I thought I’d share how cool this looks. I bet if you painted 4 sides of the cubes white and did this with a neopixel matrix it would look super seamless. I was just trying to diffuse them for fiber optic strands.

NeoPixel Ring – 12 x WS2812 5050 RGB LED with Integrated Drivers: Round and round and round they go! 12 ultra bright smart LED NeoPixels are arranged in a circle with 1.5″ (37mm) outer diameter. The rings are ‘chainable’ – connect the output pin of one to the input pin of another. Use only one microcontroller pin to control as many as you can chain together! Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside the LED. Each one has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making the design slim. Power the whole thing with 5VDC and you’re ready to rock. (read more)
