Need to control 440 neopixels, what board to use? Flora? Tee

by crafty_avenger on Fri Nov 04, 2016 9:59 pm

This is for a dress... a ballgown really with a really poofy dress that needs all kinds of light and patterns. While I have done many many smaller projects this is perhaps the most LEDs I have ever attempted to put into one garment.

I wasn't sure if Flora could handle it or if I needed something else.

The Flora has enough memory to handle around 650 pixels, depending on the complexity of your code. So 440 should not be a problem.

Thanks! The code will be pretty straight forward and is not incorporating sensor input for this project so it should work out pretty well.

It turned out well. There are a few things I would do differently but that is how projects go. Mostly I need a lighter power source than the big bricks.
