micro:bit projects: Bicycle Lights! @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

Made by Peli de Halleux via hackster.io

Using a micro:bit and a NeoPixel strip, create your custom lighting for dark night bicycle rides.

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. The code is written in JavaScript in https://pxt.microbit.org.

The strip is attached under the frame using simple cable ties. The power cables have been soldered to a USB cable to easily plug it into the battery pack.
