LED-STRIPE-XX is addressable LED stripe which you can control with arduino, it’s available with 8 LEDs (25 cm), 16 LEDs (50 cm) and 32 LEDs (1 meter). LEDs are sealaed with PE and can be used outdoor also (hint Christmas is approaching 🙂 ).
Each LED can be set with 24 bit color independently from the others.
Here is video how LED-STRIPE-8 is controlled by OLIMEXINO-85 EUR 4.00 Arduino board.
Note that the normal light of the LED is achieved at 12V and in this demo the LEDs work only on 3.3V so they are not very bright! When powered with 12V you cant look directly at the LEDs as they are very strong.
