If space is at a premium with your project, you might want to look at the Mini Skinny NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip from Adafruit. It’s their ‘skinny’ version of the classic NeoPixel strip. They feature 144 RGB addressable mini-LEDs per metre, and the strip is only 7.5 mm wide. With that many LEDs packing into such a small flexible PCB, be sure to read more about the power requirements. If you’ve got the power, but not the space, check out this LED strip, it won’t disappoint!
They give Adafruit’s light strip a 9/10, saying “Bright and tiny!”
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
