    Hey MarkC360,In your Arduino Software, go to the Sketch Menu, Include Library, Manage Library. There you can find the Adafruit and FastLED libraries to add. :)You only need to do this once, and it will be part of your environment.

    Stranger Things Interactive Wall Art

    Hi Akin (and others)!My LEDs came in, and I've been able to start testing. The C9 format is exactly what I wanted, and they are working great. They are 12V, so I did need to run additional power independantly (I may ask you some additional hardware questions later)!For the code, here's a quick clean up of what you provided. The "For" loop is useful if you want to set all LEDs to the same colour (or turn them all off). It isn't necessary for turning individual lights on and off.Hopefully you can make sense of what I've done, and re-do your code snippets in the instructable. In another week or so, I'll share the updated code I'm doing, so the lights will blink, and do patterns, and hopefully have a simplified way of entering messages.Thanks again.#include <Adafruit_NeoPi...see more »Hi Akin (and others)!My LEDs came in, and I've been able to start testing.

    Akin, This is AWESOME! Thanks for sharing all the information. Do you have suggestions on what you would change to make a full sized wall version? Will the same neoPixels be bright enough to simulate a christmas light? I'm thinking of using your approach, then possibly gluing regular christmas lights on the outside, so it looks like the christmas lights are turning on?
