Adafruit Flora

Hi Everybody! Welcome to my new blog. I build a lot of really interesting stuff, so I am going to share some of it here.

I made my first project with the Adafruit Flora today. I sewed NeoPixel LEDs into the collar points, and wrote code to change the color slowly, so it's constantly interesting, and not too flashy. The Flora is a special Arduino platform made by Adafruit specifically for sewing. The NeoPixels are RGB LEDs that can be controlled using only one serial line from the Flora. They have shift registers built in, so the first one in the chain is pixel 0, the second one pixel 1, and so on. Great fun!
