New Tutorial: Make a Fiber Optic LED Whip

Fiber Optic Whips

New on the Adafruit Learning System: make a Fiber Optic LED Whip.

This whip makes me feel like I’m dancing with a thousand fireflies.

Its light source is a neopixel jewel, with seven addressable pixels allowing for an amazing array of color changes and animations.  The end-glow fibers dance around in the air and create a whirl of color points that is mesmerizing to watch and incredibly fun to play with.  I never want to put it down.

The handle is 3d printed and fits the battery and all the electronics inside.  There’s a button for changing modes and an on-off switch.  It’s got an onboard battery charger too, so you can play with it for hours and then recharge by plugging in a USB cable.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
