This is a cute Neopixel unicorn project from Cole Linhart on YouTube.
The cycle is two rainbows (ones a spoke, ones a fade) and solid lavender. This is a project I did with my dad (linhartr22), he places the code on github. I provide artistry (gluing, tying, sourcing objects, etc.), he provides the gnome/engineering magic (everything wires, code).. This is a gemma from Arduino, on two individually addressable LEDs and a battery.
Next mod: add a 2-button chip that allows for switching between modes on the strands one at a time.
Arduino GEMMA – Miniature wearable electronic platform: What do you get when you combine an Adafruit classic with geniuses at Arduino? The Arduino GEMMA! It’s a tiny wearable platform board with a lot of might in a 1″ diameter package. Powered by a Attiny85 and programmable with an Arduino IDE over USB, you’ll be able to realize any wearable project.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
