MPU6050 Gyroscope NeoPixel Ring

Cool, simple display mechanism for showing the direction a gyroscope sensor is tilted in. I can imagine this setup being implemented for everything from games to wearables to multirotors and more. Watch:

In this project, we’ll combine a gyroscope and NeoPixels to build a device that lights LEDs corresponding to the angle of inclination.

Instructions – and code – are currently available here on Hackster.io and also here on Instructables – thanks to Hackster for originally posting about this project.
