Bicycle Frame Lighting with Micro:Bit and NeoPixels

NewImage

While this project from Peli de Halleux on Hackster.io is focused on visibility during dark winter commutes, we wanted to share it regardless of the season. We’re all about being glowy.

It’s winter time again and the days are shortening. Soon enough, my bicycle commute will involve some night time riding. It’s time to boost the lights on the bicycle by adding a 60 LED NeoPixel strip controlled by a BBC micro:bit powered by a dual USB plug battery pack.

<p><a href=Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip – White 60 LED – WHITE: You thought it couldn’t get better than our world-famous 32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! You wanted twice the LEDs? We got it (well, its 1.875 times as many but that’s within a margin of error). You wanted thinner strips? Now only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the strip from the casing. You wanted less noticeable strip color – this strip has white-colored flex PCB, which will be less visible against white-painted walls. This is the strip with white flex PCB, its identical to the black 60 LED/meter except it has a different color mask on the flex strip (read more)
