This is a work in progress for an epic combination of Adafruit neopixels, and poi! Powered by a rechargeable Lithium ion battery, and controlled with an Adafruit trinket, all 30 of the RGB LEDs can individually be controlled for an amazing effect. This is an epic way to light up a summer night!
The designs are not perfect, but will be improving often!
Poi is a style of performance art, in which a performer spins 2 objects around themselves in many intricate patterns. Poi are often lit on fire, but for a safer and more colorful option, I chose to use LEDs instead!
Aside from the 3D printed parts, this project uses per poi :
Adafruit Trinket - Mini Microcontroller - 3.3V Logic
Adafruit Pro Trinket LiIon/LiPoly Backpack Add-On
1/2 Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip - White 60 LED
16mm Illuminated Pushbutton - White Momentary
Breadboard-friendly SPDT Slide Switch
Basic soldering tools, and various wires are also used in this project
Sadly I have not yet had the time to put together a second model and complete the set. Stay tuned for updates, as they will be coming frequently. If this project receives 100 likes, I will post a detailed tutorial so that anyone can learn from my mistakes and maybe even light up their night!
