Water Feature with #NeoPixels

NewImage

From Scott Hladun on Hackster.io:

I think that in the future I’d like to add on to this quite a bit. I think that it has a lot of potential to be something pretty wicked! Firstly, I would like to build a reservoir for the fountain so that it can reuse the water that is going through the pumps. Right now I have a bowl full of water that it is using, and I need to fill it up every time it gets too low. Secondly, I would love to just have the project use the Onion Omega2+. I think it has a lot of potential, and is so much easier to use than the raspberry pi. I think I could control the neopixels with the arduino dock, I would just need to spend a bit more time figuring out the music. Thirdly, I really want to add a lot more sensors to the fountain to measure things like UV light, and humidity, etc. and every morning have this data send notifications to my phone to help me prepare for each day. And lastly, I would really like to have the water also react to the music and have a bunch more pumps to make a really spectacular water show!
