About: My name is Bay Yolal, hello everybody!

Today, I am going to show you how to use NeoPixel Ring with Arduino Uno a very basic type. As you know, we love colorful LED's, even it has been established on a ring!

The need list:

1. Arduino Uno

2. NeoPixel Ring 16xWS2812 (with 16 embedded tiny neopixels)

3. Your Pc, to upload Arduino codes, loaded Arduino IDE

Step 1: The Codes and Connections

You will see there are two files on the attachment.

Put the rar file extracted onto libraries >> Arduino >> libraries >> paste all files here as a neopixel folder in.

Then use the codes.txt onto Arduino IDE to upload codes to Arduino Uno or whatelse you have as a board.

You will use only 5V, GND, and Arduino PWM side's pin 6 only on this example.

The picture on the attachment is the connections of Arduino Uno and NeoPixel Ring as between.

My source is based on Adafruit: https://learn.adafruit.com/florabrella/test-the-ne...

What is next is: using two neopixel rings together! Check the second video.

That's all !

    This is amazing! Just used the code and it worked perfectly! How hard would it be to edit the code to include 4 Neopixel rings?
