An interactive LED project using a 1m 144 Neopixel LED strip, an Arduino UNO, a potentiometer, an accelerometer and most importantly, the FastLED library.
Some interesting effects:

  • Cylon with hue and brightness control,
  • Comet effect,
  • Fire Starter,
  • Twinkling Rainbow,
  • and Digital Spirit Level.

Full tutorial and code can be found on my blog:

This was a collaborative effort between ArduinoBasics and the OpenLab (http://openlab.com.au/)
