I want to build a music reactive crown for an upcoming music festival. I have been reading up on this for a bit and needed some help to make sure my design is not missing anything. Also, if someone had a good enclosure they can recommend for the pixelblaze and sensor board that would be awesome.
Basic idea is for 144 LEDs to be wrapped in a spiral around my head. The 3 pin LED connector will run down the back of my neck and into the Pixelblaze enclosure and battery pack that are strapped to my waist with Velcro. Because of the power requirements of 144 LEDs I will power the strip using a second USB cord.
Here is my part list:
pluggable 4 pin headers
solderless 3-wire connector clips
WS2812B 144 LEDs waterproof - 1 meter
24,000 mAh 5v battery bank with 2 USB ports
Cotton diffuser material
Velcro straps for crown, enclosure, and battery bank.
USB to 2 Pin 8mm Solderless Quick Connectors
3 pin LED wire connector
So what do you think? Am I missing anything?
