WS2811 LED Pixel Hat

I made this for New Year's Eve. It has 114 RGB pixels and an MSGEQ7 chip to analyze audio. The pixels are all turned down to 51 max brightness (out of 255). I used an Arduino to control the pixels in one continuous chain, and a USB battery pack for power.

Great job! Any chance of sharing your code? I just started playing with the MSGEQ7 with my WS2811 strips and a Google search brought me to HAD and here.

I wonder if this could be incorporated into orthodontic braces.

I love this! I too would love the code as I have just purchased a strip of these RGB pixel LEDs Please. Do you think that you will be doing an Instructable also? I have been searching for ways to use these RGBs and came across this site. thank you for sharing.

Garrett, thank you for the idea and the inspiration for lots of the music-reactive modes :)

Which line of code to change

Which line of code to change the number of pixels? I can use 25 pixels?

No share code.

No share code. Ostentatious!
