Here at Adafruit we love discovering new and exotic glowing things. Like moths to the flame, we were intrigued by these fresh Flexible Silicone Neon-Like LED Strips! They look a lot like neon, but without the need for expensive transformers, glass tubing or inert gasses.
Super flexible and bendy, they feature a single-color non-addressable LED strip with a solid chunk of translucent silicone rubber as a diffuser. They look incredible, and super easy to use and are a great way to make your projects light up!
The silicone makes for a strong, durable weather-proof casing. They’re not for dunking underwater or long-term outdoor exposure but they seem durable enough for projects that have to survive the outdoors, like costumes, bike lighting or festival decorations.
Note these are not ‘NeoPixel’ LED strips, you can turn the whole thing on or off, but you cannot turn on individual LEDs or change the colors. You can cut the silicone cover and LED strip up if you like, you might end up breaking or or two LEDs in the process but it is possible!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

The company I work for and I have created a couple of multi layered neon signs using this product and a few other design disciplines. Fun product! I have posted pics on my Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/roanegary/?hl=en
