Bring some delightful 8-bit flair to your Christmas tree (or any other holiday foliage) with this Super Mario star power-up, the Starduino! 3D print the custom-designed model, made to lovingly nestle a 16 LED NeoPixel ring and Arduino Gemma in its belly. Then, program the GEMMA with a super fancy blinky pattern of goodness and light.
Livestream Studio is an incredibly robust streaming software. Regular keyboards and mice work, but for fast action and ease of use, you can't beat a dedicated piece of switching hardware with arcade buttons. Bluetooth and LiPo-battery powered, have access to everything you need to get your show switching with gusto.
Candles are a fire hazard and blow out. Inexpensive LED candles are either just a constant light, or have little flicker. Using NeoPixels and an Arduino-compatible, we can create a more animated Jack-o-lantern. This very quick project uses multiple NeoPixels for each "flame" to create more color resolution and smooth out color transitions.
NeoPixels are plenty bright, suuuure. BUT ARE THEY 3 WATTS BRIGHT? No! They are not! That's why you need a Pixie. These chainable smart LEDs are not only super-smart, they are ridonkulously bright with 3W total, compared to 0.2W of a 'standard' NeoPixel. Designed by Ytai Ben-Tsvi, these are the ultimate in LEDs.
