What's a wearable project without LEDs? Our favorite part of the Flora platform is these tiny smart pixels. Designed specifically for wearables, we found the brightest RGB LEDs available (an eye-blistering ~3800mcd) and paired them with a constant-current driver chip. The contacts are easily sewn with conductive thread. Use this guide to test your first pixel and start on a blinding wearables project with FLORA or GEMMA!

We now have both the older v1 pixels and the newer v2 pixels. This tutorial will cover both - the sewing part is the same for both versions but the library code is different as the controlling chipset has been upgraded in v2
