Neopixel RGB LED 5-Color Cycler (Arduino)

Introduction: Neopixel RGB LED 5-Color Cycler (Arduino)

About: Computer Engineering Student & Hobbyist

This project is a ring of 12 RGB LEDs controlled to show different set colours (in a smile pattern), based on the resistance of the slide potentiometer.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to read them as improvements can always be made. :)

Step 3: Arduino Code

The original code is an Adafruit Neopixel Example, "Simple," modified by myself to work with this project.
Currently it shows five different colours, either red, yellow, green, blue or violet. If the potentiometer is not in range of the values set into the conditional statements, it will turn all the LEDs off. (set R,G,B to 0,0,0).
