NeoPixel Ring Help

by keven11 on Tue Jun 28, 2022 11:27 am

Hello all,

I have a LEGO project that I’m working on, specifically a LEGO figure scaled batsignal that I am trying to rig up to light on top of a LEGO figure scaled building. The neopixel 12 RGBW LED ring is the PERFECT size but I have literally no idea what I’m doing in terms of getting it wired and programmed or even how to power it. I thought I understood after programming I didn’t need it hooked up to an arduino but the videos I’m seeing are saying otherwise and…honestly I’m lost on this. I can solder. I can Google my way through code. But this is beyond me. Anyone able to assist or point me in a good direction? Thanks!

The neopixels need a controller to light up, here is the tutorial for neopixels For a static display it might be overkill but it has options for animation that LEDs do not have.
