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.

What is next is: using two neopixel rings together! Check the second video.
That's all !
