Firewalker sneaks

Hi,

so i've put together some firewalker sneaks and have been playing about with some scanner patterns

its scans from each end of the neopixel strip with random colours

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
#include <Adafruit_NeoPixel.h>

#define N_LEDS 42 
#define PIN    12
 
Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(N_LEDS, PIN, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800);

[color=#CC6600]int[/color] RED;
[color=#CC6600]int[/color] GRE;
[color=#CC6600]int[/color] BLU;
 
[color=#CC6600]void[/color] [color=#CC6600][b]setup[/b][/color]() {
  strip.[color=#CC6600]begin[/color]();
}

[color=#CC6600]int[/color] pos = 0, dir = 1; [color=#7E7E7E]// Position, direction of "eye"[/color]
[color=#CC6600]int[/color] pos2 = 41, dir2 = 1;

[color=#CC6600]void[/color] [color=#CC6600][b]loop[/b][/color]() {
  
  RED = [color=#CC6600]random[/color](255);
  GRE = [color=#CC6600]random[/color](255);
  BLU = [color=#CC6600]random[/color](255);
  
  [color=#CC6600]int[/color] j;
  [color=#7E7E7E]// Draw 5 pixels centered on pos.  setPixelColor() will clip any[/color]
  [color=#7E7E7E]// pixels off the ends of the strip, we don't need to watch for that.[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos - 2, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Dark red[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos - 1, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Medium red[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos    , RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Center pixel is brightest[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos + 1, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Medium red[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos + 2, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Dark red[/color]

  strip.setPixelColor(pos2 + 1, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Medium red[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos2    , RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Center pixel is brightest[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos2 - 1, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Medium red[/color]
  strip.setPixelColor(pos2 - 2, RED, GRE, BLU); [color=#7E7E7E]// Dark red[/color]
    
  strip.show();
  [color=#CC6600]delay[/color](60);
 
  [color=#7E7E7E]// Rather than being sneaky and erasing just the tail pixel,[/color]
  [color=#7E7E7E]// it's easier to erase it all and draw a new one next time.[/color]
  [color=#CC6600]for[/color](j=-2; j<= 2; j++) strip.setPixelColor(pos+j, 0);
  [color=#CC6600]for[/color](j=-2; j<= 2; j++) strip.setPixelColor(pos2+j, 0);
 
  [color=#7E7E7E]// Bounce off ends of strip[/color]
  pos += dir;
  [color=#CC6600]if[/color](pos < 0) {
    pos = 1;
    dir = -dir;
  } [color=#CC6600]else[/color] [color=#CC6600]if[/color](pos >= strip.numPixels()) {
    pos = strip.numPixels() - 2;
    dir = -dir;
  }
  pos2 += dir2;
  [color=#CC6600]if[/color](pos2 < 0) {
    pos2 = 1;
    dir2 = -dir2;
  } [color=#CC6600]else[/color] [color=#CC6600]if[/color](pos2 >= strip.numPixels()) {
    pos2 = strip.numPixels() - 2;
    dir2 = -dir2;
  }
}
