Introduction: K.I.T.T Scanner

About: I like to create new things! I'm very interested in IOT and just Internet Stuff. I am not responsible for any injury or deaths caused by my projects.

If you ever have watched knight rider you will remember K.I.T.T and his Scanner, we will replicate thatin this instructable using 6 Neopixels and and Arduino Uno!

Step 1: Connect NeoPixels

After all power is removed from the Arduino Board Connect 5v to 5v gnd to gnd and Din to pin 3 and plug it in to your computer!

Step 2: Program the Arduino

Download the Code Here

I used this code to run the LED's:

#include

#define PIN 3 // the pin your strip is connected to

#define COUNT 6 // how many led's are on that strip

Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(COUNT, PIN, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800); //defines the strips properties

void setColor(int Pixel, int R2, int G2, int B2){

uint32_t color = strip.Color(R2, G2, B2); // make a color

strip.setPixelColor(Pixel, color); //set a single pixel color

strip.show(); //update the colors

}

void setup() {

strip.begin(); // start the strip

strip.show(); // set the strip to black (because we havent told it to do anything yet) }

void loop() {

for(int i = 0; i<4 i++){

setColor(i, 255, 0, 0);

setColor(i - 1, 200, 0, 0);

setColor(i - 2, 150, 0, 0);

setColor(i - 3, 50, 0, 0);

setColor(i - 4, 0, 0, 0);

delay(150);

}

for(int i = 0; i>-4; i--){

setColor(i, 255, 0, 0);

setColor(i + 1, 200, 0, 0);

setColor(i + 2, 150, 0, 0);

setColor(i + 3, 50, 0, 0);

setColor(i + 4, 0, 0, 0);

delay(150); }

}

Step 3: Your Done (IT'S AWESOME WATCHING)
