Merry Christmas! We got some new LED strips in a week or so ago that are based on the WS2812B. I was pretty excited to play around with them, so I decided I would decorate Ben’s house and make him film this video with me. (I know. I should have decorated my own house, but I live far from the office… and don’t have a wife.)
We should have the code we used for the LEDs available on our github page in a couple of days.
We are giving you one more reason to take your holiday decorations this year to the next level: we have lowered the prices on our LED strips!
Our 30-LED, 1 m strip has dropped from $34.95 to $24.95.
Our 60-LED, 2 m strip has dropped from $69.95 to $47.95.
Our 150-LED, 5 m strip has dropped from $149.95 to $119.95.
And if you are thinking custom lighting seems a little complicated, you will be surprised how easy it is to get these strips up and running with an Arduino. I show you how in this video where I am using the examples included in our Arduino library for addressable RGB LED strips to get started.
Our large selection of cables, wires, and connectors makes connecting electronics easier. This video will show you some of what we offer.
We are excited to release this new video for our Maestro Servo Controllers! Get some ideas for cool things you can do with the Maestro, and see how easy it is to get started with our custom software. This is the first of many fun new Pololu videos to come! Let us know what you think or what other products you would like to see in action in the comment section below.
