Connecting NeoPixels and micro:bit (03)

Connecting NeoPixels and micro:bit (03)

Welcome back! Natasha here. :) 

This is the third of 10 blog posts featuring each video in my series on animating LEDs with micro:bit and Make Code. If you've just stumbled upon this post, start from the beginning here.

ln this video, I'll show you how to connect micro:bit, a LiPo battery, and NeoPixel LEDs to prepare the project for downloading code.

After I show you how to connect the components properly, I'll offer ideas for attaching the LED strip to a bike helmet or other accessory. Then, I'll go over some other micro:bit connection types to consider when you are designing your own project.

Watch it now:

How did it go?

Did you find a new way to connect your components that others can be inspired by? Did your project fall apart?

Comment below with details, or join the Discord channel to share your questions, concerns and especially your successful builds. See you there!
