I'd like to control the Digital LED pixels
here on Adafruit, but unfortunately due to being in a dorm, I can't do any soldering. I also have a Raspberry Pi to connect the LEDs to, but I'm not entirely sure how to do so.
In a video
, I did see someone using what looked like the jumper extenders to connect the LED's wires to the GPIO headers on the Pi.https://www.adafruit.com/products/826
Would the above work to control the LED strip, or would there be an incompatibility for any reason? I'm guessing I would use the female end to connect to the Raspberry Pi, and use electrical tape or heatshrink to attach the wire from the LED string to the male pin. Obviously the power would be connected to the barrel connector also here on Adafruit.
Sorry for the dumb questions-- I'm new to electronics and am trying to start learning :)
