    APPLICATION SETTINGS
    FACTORYRESET_ENABLE       Perform a factory reset when running this sketch
   
                              Enabling this will put your Bluefruit LE module
                              in a 'known good' state and clear any config
                              data set in previous sketches or projects, so
                              running this at least once is a good idea.
   
                              When deploying your project, however, you will
                              want to disable factory reset by setting this
                              value to 0.  If you are making changes to your
                              Bluefruit LE device via AT commands, and those
                              changes aren't persisting across resets, this
                              is the reason why.  Factory reset will erase
                              the non-volatile memory where config data is
                              stored, setting it back to factory default
                              values.
       
                              Some sketches that require you to bond to a
                              central device (HID mouse, keyboard, etc.)
                              won't work at all with this feature enabled
                              since the factory reset will clear all of the
                              bonding data stored on the chip, meaning the
                              central device won't be able to reconnect.
                              
    MATRIX DECLARATION        Parameter 1 = width of NeoPixel matrix
                              Parameter 2 = height of matrix
                              Parameter 3 = pin number (most are valid)
                              Parameter 4 = matrix layout flags, add together as needed:
    NEO_MATRIX_TOP,
    NEO_MATRIX_BOTTOM,
    NEO_MATRIX_LEFT,
    NEO_MATRIX_RIGHT          Position of the FIRST LED in the matrix; pick two, e.g.
                              NEO_MATRIX_TOP + NEO_MATRIX_LEFT for the top-left corner.
                              NEO_MATRIX_ROWS, NEO_MATRIX_COLUMNS: LEDs are arranged in horizontal
                              rows or in vertical columns, respectively; pick one or the other.
    NEO_MATRIX_PROGRESSIVE,
    NEO_MATRIX_ZIGZAG         all rows/columns proceed in the same order, 
                              or alternate lines reverse direction; pick one.
                              See example below for these values in action.
    
    Parameter 5 = pixel type flags, add together as needed:
                              
    NEO_KHZ800                800 KHz bitstream (most NeoPixel products w/WS2812 LEDs)
    NEO_KHZ400                400 KHz (classic 'v1' (not v2) FLORA pixels, WS2811 drivers)
    NEO_GRB                   Pixels are wired for GRB bitstream (most NeoPixel products)
    NEO_RGB                   Pixels are wired for RGB bitstream (v1 FLORA pixels, not v2)

    #define PIN                     6   // Which pin on the Arduino is connected to the NeoPixels?

// Example for NeoPixel 8x8 Matrix.  In this application we'd like to use it 
// with the back text positioned along the bottom edge.
// When held that way, the first pixel is at the top left, and

// 800 KHz (v2) pixels that expect GRB color data.
