NeoPixel Compass

Not a question, per se....more of a show-n-tell, I suppose. Do you guys have a forum group for that? Or somewhere else to post these types of things? I didn't see it.

Anyway, I was playing with the new, and very cool, NeoPixel Ring — I hooked it up to my UNO, along with the Accelerometer/Magnetometer breakout board. I wrote a simple little sketch and...viola! An RGB LED compass on my Arduino.

A quick little video I made of it --

Thanks!
Please forgive my hyperanthropomorphization.
Every answer reveals new questions.
And, yes... there's always a better way to 'do that'.
