LED Star

Thanks to Harm for letting us know about their LED star project! Harm writes:

Hi there!

Just in time I finished a LED Christmas decoration using Neopixels and an ESP8266. It’s made of reclaimed wood and aluminium with an fairground light as Neopixel housing. Maybe a nice project for other makers as a Christmas gift.

You’ll find images and details on my website:

I also made a video of me building the star:

NeoPixel Jewel – 7 x 5050 RGB LED with Integrated Drivers: Be the belle of the ball with the NeoPixel Jewel! We fit seven of our tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) smart RGB LEDs onto a beautiful, round PCB with mounting holes and a chainable design to create what we think is our most elegant (and evening-wear appropriate) NeoPixel board yet.

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)


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.
