Mother’s Day recycled craft using micro:bit,neopixel and laser cutter by Mark Ng

DFRobot May 10 2018 18

What you need
1. Cardboard from carton box
2. Neopixel strip(6 LEDS) x 2
3. Dupont cables
4. micro:bit
5. Laser cutter



1. Count the number of LEDS on the strip or ring. Specify which pin the neopixel is connected to.
2. Take note of the arrow direction .
Din is the input (connect to the micro:bit). To connect 8 leds or more (recommended but a lot of
times, I have no problem running 12) in a strip requires an external supply.
