Aloha! Are you looking for a beautiful decoration for late summer parties, camping trips, or festivals? The techno-tiki torch project is the perfect way to set the mood with LED torches that glow and animate in any color. These lights are built from a Gemma and NeoPixel strip placed inside a mason jar that's filled with diffuse material. The jar slides right into a bamboo tiki torch and turns it into a techno-tiki torch that glows with cyber-Hawaiian ambiance. And since this torch has no flames it's safe to use anywhere, even indoors! Light up the dark with the fun colors and style of the techno-tiki torch.
To follow this project it will help to familiarize yourself with the following guides first:
Overall this is an easy project that can be built in an afternoon. There's a small amount of soldering to connect NeoPixels, Gemma, and an IR receiver. Continue on to learn about the parts needed to build the project.
