LED strip code used in Pololu Christmas video

Posted by Emily on 19 December 2013


We added the code we used for the LEDs in our Christmas video last week to our GitHub page. Ben cleaned it up a bit and added lots of comments, so we hope it’s helpful if you want to use it as a base to write some awesome sequences for your own LED strips.

In case you missed the video, here it is again:

OMG, you were reading my mind! I have another idea which is to mount these strips in rows (maybe 6 rows??) and then use the array to draw things :) Perhaps even animated things :D like Pac-man chasing ghosts or snowflakes.
If these were built in some kind of waterproof board, they could even be left on the house year round. They could be used for Halloween, birthdays, Easter, whatever. Oooh and the guys favorite thing is you never have to take them down!!!
