Oh yes, good potential fun there! What a deal.

Great catch! Ordered it right away. What can we do with it?


Maybe I can get some experience for my lamp project :slight_smile:

Ordered, thanks!

The measurement given on that page for the size seems wrong to me. I’m estimating (based on the 12 pixel neopixel I have) that the largest ring in this set is about 72mm (about 2.8 inches) on the outer diameter. When someone gets their set can you post the dimensions?

@marmil given each WS2812 is 5mm wide, I agree (without having one on hand) with your 2.8" estimate for the diameter of the largest ring.
Still a nice, inexpensive package

I’m seeing very high shipping costs when I try to checkout out ($120 for 3 items). :frowning:

(Jason Coon) #8

Likewise, in the US. Where are you, Gabriel?

(Andrew Tuline) #9

Was free in Canada as well.

(Gabriel Schine) #10

In the US. I’ll try again…

Ah, if you select a quantity over 2, the shipping options change. Shrug. I guess I’m buying two.

@Gabriel_Schine Yeah then go back and buy another with free shipping if you want 3 !!
