No matter how simple your project is, LED lights always makes it a bit more hi-tech looking. If you don't believe me, ask someone who remembers watching a sci-fi shows on the 80's (i.e. knight rider, star trek, ET, Alien..etc). Characters on the show stares at these LED lights pretending to be a computer monitor.
What's a wearable project without LEDs? The pixels are chainable - so you only need 1 pin/wire to control as many LEDs as you like
There are 32 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control each LED individually! Yes, that's right, this is the digitally-addressable type of LED strip.
Easy to use, customizable high resolution name badge. You can even create your own graphics using Microsoft Paint or any bitmap editor. Can be used for countless occasions
Round and round and round they go! 24 ultra bright smart LED NeoPixels are arranged in a circle with 2.6" (66mm) outer diameter. The rings are 'chainable' - connect the output pin of one to the input pin of another
Round and round and round they go! 16 ultra bright smart LED NeoPixels are arranged in a circle with 1.75" (44.5mm) outer diameter. Each LED is addressable as the driver chip is inside the LED. Each one has ~18mA constant current drive so the color will be very consistent even if the voltage varies, and no external choke resistors are required making the design slim
These LED strips are fun and glowy. There are 30 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control the entire strip at once with any microcontroller and three transistors.
Make your own little LED strip arrangement with this stick of NeoPixel LEDs. We crammed 8 of the tiny 5050 (5mm x 5mm) smart RGB LEDs onto a PCB with mounting holes and a chainable design.
These LED panels take care of all the work of making a big matrix display. Each panel has six 8x8 red matrix modules, for a 16x24 matrix.
What's better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! A fun way to make a small colorful display is to use a 1.2" Bi-color 8x8 LED Matrix . Matrices like these are 'multiplexed' - so to control all the 128 LEDs you need 24 pins.
What's better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! A fun way to make a small display is to use an 8x8 matrix or a 4-digit 7-segment display. Matrices like these are 'multiplexed' - so to control 64 LEDs you need 16 pins.
Make a scrolling sign, or a small video display with this 8x8 gridded bi-color LED matrix. Only 3cm (1.2") on a side, it is quite visible but not so large it wont plug into a breadboard! 128 LEDs are contained in the plastic body, 64 red 320mcd and 64 green, in an 8x8 matrix.
Black luminous textile. This black fiber optic fabric is a cool and unique way to add some shine to your e-textiles project. There are optical fibers actually woven into this piece of fabric! Simply shine a bright light into the fiber bundle, which is collected at one end, and the fabric fills with little shining pinpoints. You can make the fabric nearly glow with a little bit of abrasion, just rough it up with fine sandpaper to damage the fiber and make it “leak” light. Selective abrasion is a great way to make a pattern!
The Bubble Display comes in an easy-to-use 12-pin DIP package and can be used in breadboards, protoboards, or PCBs.
This is a simple 5mm LED with an interesting array of applications. This UV LED can be used for counterfeit detection (bills, credit cards, documents, etc), sterilization, pesticide, black lights, sun burns, the list goes on. Please wear eye protection when using these LEDs.
You thought it couldn't get better than our world-famous 32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! You wanted twice the LEDs? We got it (well, its 1.875 times as many but that's within a margin of error). You wanted thinner strips? Now only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the strip from the casing. You wanted less noticable strip color - this strip has white-colored flex PCB, which will be less visible against white-painted walls. This is the strip with white flex PCB, its identical to the black 60 LED/meter except it has a different color mask on the flex strip
