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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
