You can get them on ebay or amazon. Look up WS2812b. They come in strips that you can cut and solder. If you get these you need a power source obviously and a controller. The good thing about these are they're individually addressable so you can change it section by section, or even within the same section.

C++, and it's a fair bit easier than C, but still way harder than Python. I would recommend learning it.

>IOT

Can we stop with this please? I could hook up my LEDs to a motion sensor very easily and it would do exactly what is in that guide, but it wouldn't be hooked up to my phone or my vibrator through teledildonics.

IoT stuff has a place, but this is clearly not it. STOP WITH THE IOT MEME.

I don't understand why people don't build their own LED controllers.

So that price is kind of doable if you only do one room. 5M of individually addressable LEDs are like $40 on ebay. You would still need a micro controller ($20), IR reciever ($2), power supply of 5V 20 amp ($30), and capacitor and wires.

The plus about using IR is that you can use a remote that goes to your TV and it works just fine. The down side is you basically have to design a UI that you have to memorize. Mine is somewhat complicated so I'm basically the only person who can use it effectively. Upside is that it's cheap. Down side to using a uC is that you have to program it yourself. The upside, which far outweighs the down side, is that you can program any number of patterns, make a custom color selector, and basically control every aspect of the lighting.

>12V

You can hook it up to your fuse box in the car. Depending on the amp draw you want to hook it up to a higher amp fuse. Your fuse box probably has unused fuse place holders that you can use.

Nice trips. Go to spark fun and look under sensors. You can wire up one of the pressure sensors to an Arduino which you can also use to control the lights. The programming could be rather simple depending on what you want to do. If it's just pressure activated with one sensor super easy. You could get fancy and have five, one for each toe to select light sequences.

So a bill of material would probably be

>strip of WS2812B 5050 addressable RGB LEDs 1 Meter
>Arduino mini 5V 2 each
>Lithium Ion rechargeable batter (select the mAH rating depending on how long you want them to stay on) 2 each
>pressure sensor 2 each
>wire

Honestly, unless you plan on programming custom light sequences and shit you're probably better off buying something like >>1061877 from ebay/ali baba

Build what? The lights or the power supply? Yes to both, although the power supply you should have an oscilloscope.

That's just how diodes work...

But seriously apply power in between each strip for best results.

EL is ok, but it's not that bright and definitely not water resistant.

ELastoLite is a step up. It's like EL, but they're water proof and I do believe you can cut the glowing material to make patterns. Again, not very bright but a step up from EL.

Finally, there's the good ole' LED. This is what I would recommend because you can buy LED strips for dirt cheap with a water resistant sheath and make/buy a small waterproof case for the battery and/or controller.

Arduinos are fun, and they get you introduced to the concept of micro controllers and what you can do with them.

Most of my projects revolve around lighting shit up because that's what appeals to muh autism.

Ignore the decCode stuff. That's for an IR remote.

The entirety of the code is over a thousand lines. I even have a function to choose custom colors.

That is true. I guess OP would have to find out what type of LED it is, but that really isn't going to be an option. Best bet would be to just get some WS2812B's, and Arduino with an IR receiver, and a T.V. remote. That's what I did.

5 meters of the stuff is $34.50 with free shipping.

Hold on. Usually when I find someone autistic enough to know about micro controllers they put you down if you use Arduino. Are you telling me there is an Arduino user getting upset about other Arduino users? Holy shit, it's like we're through the looking glass here.

Seeing that I use these things in all sorts of applications in many different situations I have to say that you don't have to worry at all about heat. Also, the max power draw is is 90mW total. So yeah I don't really see a problem with using the resin.
