This simple project adds a little color to your life with CircuitPython, PyPortal and NeoPixels. Add two NeoPixel strips to your PyPortal, and display colored buttons that you can touch to set the LED colors. Wave your hand over the PyPortal light sensor to switch between controlling each strip separately or both together.
There's no soldering needed for this project! The PyPortal has two 3-pin JST connectors on it, labeled D3 and D4. These connectors work perfectly with 3-pin JST NeoPixel strips.
To build this project, simply plug one of these NeoPixel strips into each of the two connectors on the PyPortal.
This project can control two of these strips:
That's all there is to it! Now you're ready to set up the software on your PyPortal. Let's get started!
