Arduino NeoPixel Wifi

An application to rule the neopixels all. Things used in this project Hardware components Arduino MKR1000 × 1 Adafruit NeoPixel Ring: WS2812 5050 RGB LED × 1 Story I love LEDs but as much as I love them, you have to manually pull the color in your arduino and honestly there are no good or cool applications to do that, so the best way to that is either with your computer or with bluetooth, but the bluetooth ...

Arduino MKR1000/Zero Neopixel Throwie

A WiFi controlled NeoPixel display. Designed for the MKR1000 but should work for the Zero too. A little rough around the edges but works! Things used in this project Hardware components Arduino MKR1000 × 1 Adafruit NeoPixel Ring: WS2812 5050 RGB LED × 1 Adafruit Flora RGB Neopixel LEDs- Pack of 4 × 1 Breadboard (generic) × 1 Capacitor 1000 µF × 1 Jumper wires (generic) × 1 Resistor 475 ohm 470 Ohm resistor ...

INEFFICIENT NEOPIXEL CONTROL SOLVED WITH HARDWARE HACKERY

Everyone loves NeoPixels. Individually addressable RGB LEDs at a low price. Just attach an Arduino, load the demo code, and enjoy your blinking lights. But it turns out that demo code isn’t very efficient. [Ben Heck] practically did a spit take when he discovered that the ESP32 sample code for NeoPixels used a uint32 to store each bit of data. This meant 96 bytes of RAM were required for each LED. With 4k o ...

ADDRESSABLE 7-SEGMENT DISPLAYS MAY MAKE MULTIPLEXING A THING OF THE PAST

[Sean Hodgins] has a knack for coming up with simple solutions that can make a big difference, but this is one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” things: addressable seven-segment LED displays. [Sean]’s design is basically a merging of everyone’s favorite Neopixel RGB LED driver with the ubiquitous seven-segment display. The WS2811 addressable RGB driver chip doesn’t necessarily have to drive three diff ...

Indoor NeoPixel Thermometer

Hello! This is a quick, intermediate Arduino project that takes a temperature reading from a TMP36 , reads it onto an LCD screen and gives an "Analog" readout on a Neopixel stick that changes color and number of lights lit every 10 degrees Fahrenheit. It's easily customizable as NeoPixels can be coded in many ways so the NeoPixel stick can change size and colors every which way a maker would want it to. Gat ...
