for less than the price of a fancy cup of coffee, you can rescue a child
from the boredom of not having their very own microcontroller to program.
while you're shopping for all the kiddies on your list, get a spool of
addressable LEDs for just 27 cents per light - and cut the spool into
pieces whose length corresponds to how much you care about each recipient.
and of course they will need a way to power the thing while they're
wearing it, so don't forget a rechargable USB battery pack for only $2.53
don't forget micro USB cables: (short or long)
and here's the source to get it to do POV with one color:
maybe someone will make a color POV for it?
