Overview

Create a handheld, interactive NeoPixel control station with your PyGamer (or PyBadge/PyBadge LC) to set colors and animation on your RGB LEDs!

Using the on-board JST connector, its simple to plug in a NeoPixel strip and control it from the PyBadge. Using MakeCode Arcade, we'll build an interface for setting the NeoPixel strip length, and then be able to hover our cursor over 15 color swatches to quickly change the strip colors.

A second control page allows us to switch between NeoPixel animations.

And, you can use the settings page to change the number of NeoPixels to use on your strip.
