Making a "sketch" of neopixels connected to flora, bluetooth

by nicolelovekratochvil on Wed Apr 07, 2021 6:26 pm

I can't quite figure out how to successfully make a sketch of the neopixels in this project so that i can connect them via bluetooth and hopefully attempt to program them....
I've looked on other sites for help and lots of youtube tutorials but I still can't get it to work..


In case you want to know more details about the project/this information is helpful to help me:
We are trying to make a shirt that has wearable neopixels that connect to the individuals bluetooth and can help them navigate with GPS maps, programming specific neopixels to turn on to indicate turning and road edges.....

Pretty please help, any advice/suggestions would be tremendously appreciated!

@nicolelovekratochvil,

That is an ambitious project. What hardware are you using and what examples sketches have you been following? I would break this down into getting basic neopixel control from a phone going first. Ideally with a modern Adafruit board like the CircuitPlaygroundBluefruit.

Have you decided on CircuitPython or Arduino for the language to use?

This guide might be helpful as a starting point:
